I have used this my class Physics 2010- Physics for Audio Engineering, which is essentially an acoustics class, which relies heavily on the physics of oscillations. 

I also intend to use it for the "small oscillations" portion of PHY3110 - Analytical Mechanics, which is a 2nd-year mechanics course.

Used in course? Yes
