Time and Location
M W F Period 4 (10:40 am – 11:30 am), in LIT 125
Fundamentals of Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems, 6th ed., by Nagle, Saff, and Snider
Grade of C or better in MAC 2312, MAC 2512 or MAC 3473
The course will cover most of Chapters 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, and 8 (if time permits) of the text.
Homework will be assigned regularly but not collected. However, doing all the homework is essential for success in this class as the exams test your conceptual understanding of the homework assignments. Homework problems will be discussed regularly; students should be ready to present solutions on the blackboard.
The course grade will be determined by three in-class exams (equally weighted), the first two of which will be announced a week in advance and the third one will be on the last day of classes. No electronic devices (including calculators) are permitted during the exams. The resulting score determines the letter grade according to the following table.
|Score||100 – 93||92 – 88||87 – 83||82 – 74||73 – 69||68 – 64||63 – 59||58 – 54||53 – 49||48 – 40|
Attendance is mandatory. Also, please arrive to class before it starts; it is very disruptive when someone walks in late.
Make-up exams will not be administered unless they are supported by valid documentation.
