This course provides an introduction to differential equations and dynamical systems. The emphasis is on examples and applications to biology, chemistry and physics. We start with a review of basic notions of calculus. We then discuss theory and applications of first and second order differential as well as difference equations. We further study numerical methods for solving them. Next, we discuss some examples of 1D and 2D dynamical systems.
