In order to get a feeling for MST209 I will be watching the video's of MIT 18.03 Differential Equations by Prof. Arthur Mattuck. I watched lecture 1 today. Since there are 33 video lectures in total I doubt if I'll get through all of them by february though. The purpose is getting back into differential equation stuff. OU OpenLearn has several booklets from the MST209 course available which give a reasonable idea on what to expect of MST209. Both MIT 18.03 and MST209 are less formal than M208, they are mainstream courses teaching mainly how-to's, i.e. how-to solve a particular type of differential equation. - My choice for MST209 next year is more or less certain by now. Three options remain. 1) do just MST209 and concentrate and spend time on self-study of topics that really interest me (i.e. Abstract Algebra stuff ). 2) Add M381 Number Theory + Logic. 3) Add M337 Complex Analysis. Well, I haven't decided yet. MST209 involves 7 TMA's, 2CMA's and probably a MS221, M208 'type-of-exam', i.e. 12 questions for 70, plus 2 out of 5 for 30.
