2020 Applied Mathematics Summer Courses


    Mathematical Methods for Engineers I (5 credits)

  • AM 10

    Session 1

    Applications-oriented course on complex numbers and linear algebra integrating Matlab as a computational support tool. Introduction to complex algebra. Vectors, bases and transformations, matrix algebra, solutions of linear systems, inverses and determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and geometric transformations. Students cannot receive credit for this course and for courses 10A or Mathematics 21. (Formerly AMS 10.)(General Education Code(s): MF.) 

    Prerequisite(s): score of 400 or higher on the mathematics placement examination (MPE) or MATH 3.

    If this class is a prerequisite for a Session 2 course you want to take, email summer@ucsc.edu for a permission code anytime after you enroll.

    Visiting Students - prerequisites are lifted in summer. Contact summer@ucsc.edu for a permission code to enroll.

    Session 2

    Applications-oriented class on ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and systems of ODEs using Matlab as a computational support tool. Covers linear ODEs and systems of linear ODEs; nonlinear ODEs using substitution and Laplace transforms; phase-plane analysis; introduction to numerical methods. Students cannot receive credit for this course and for courses 20A or Mathematics 24. (Formerly AMS 20.) (General Education Code(s): MF.)

    Prerequisite(s): MATH 19B, and AM 10 or MATH 21.

    If you need to take the prerequisite in Session 1, enroll in that course first, then email summer@ucsc.edu for a permission code to enroll in this course.
