I looked at the Fourier Transform video, but I don't have the math background to understand the equations, unfortunately. I wish I did.

I got through differential equations (barely). Mostly what I learned is that most differential equations don't have solutions and you need to use other methods anyway. I didn't really "get" physics in college or I would have done a physics or EE degree. Later on, it all made sense when I revisited physics via Halliday, Resnick and Walker 7th edition (I think we used the first edition when I was in college) where they combine the physics and the math as one exercise. My wife got a M.S. in Applied Math a few years ago and she completely understands the math but doesn't care how it applies to physical systems.

I was thinking today that I may wish to do the same
