### Math 31

In order to develop the equations we need to describe the mass-spring oscillator in detail, the use of differential equations is required. If you feel comfortable with that level of math, you should try to work through the Math 201 module instead of or in addition to this one. If not, this module will test your abilities in taking derivatives and integrals, as well as in solving optimization problems.

Throughout the module, there are exercises to ensure you have a good understanding of the material being covered. Use the simulator to visualize your work, but ensure that you can do the calculations by hand, as you will not have access to the simulator in an exam situation, for example.
