Math 421 vs Math 423: A comparison
These two courses are only superficially similar: 421 series to introduce techniques needed by the Mechanical Engineering program while 423 is an introduction to the mathematics of partial differential equations.
Calculus through a course in Ordinary Differential Equations.
