Teaching Differential Equations with MATLAB

Event Type Start Time End Time
Webinar 2 Jun 2021 - 7:00 AM EDT 2 Jun 2021 - 8:00 AM EDT


Be part of one of the largest educational conversations of 2021! Join MathWorks for our global event series regarding the future of teaching. Our engineers will entertain you with an open discussion regarding common challenges in teaching calculus and differential equations in foundational university courses and show you how to address them. They will present classroom-ready resources that can be immediately deployed in your course.


In this session, you will learn about approaches and resources to:

  • Solve ordinary differential equations using the symbolic toolbox or numerically
  • Choose correct solvers for numerical evaluation of differential equations
  • Select mesh size, step size, time steps and apply boundary conditions
  • Model and analyse the behaviour of your differential equations with Simulink

Who Should Attend

Teaching staff and students interested in teaching differential equations in a university course.


After the webinar, all registered participants will receive jump starter packages containing the resources presented during the session. These include the slides, examples, and additional educational resources. We encourage you to try these examples. The following week we will hold a feedback session where we will cover additional technical demonstrations and answer any questions you might have.

By registering for the webinar, we will automatically reserve a place for you at the office hour session on June 9 at 1:00 PM CEST/4:30 PM IST.
