The first is about solving ode, laplace transform and phase plane analysis. It is an easy part. Everything is good with tutorial sheets and workbooks that you fill the bank.
Second part is solving pde. The asessment of pde part requires matlab. The new lecturer Zoltan doesn't upload tuturiol sheets on Blackboard. I suggest downlowding the standard textbook(Kreyszig) from google.
The lectures/tutorials are not necessary, take attendence if you like. Studying the textbook or downloading resources from google are better than attending lectures/tutorials.
