# Course 1 (Spring 2019 ) MAP 2302 Elementary Differential Equations section 022F 15646

### Time and Location

MWF 3, Little Hall  125  9:35-10:25am.

Office Hour:

Tuesday 10-11am

Wednesday 2-3pm.

Thursday 11-12.

### Description and Goals

This course covers the basic theory of ordinary differential equations and initial
value problems. It opens with a treatment of first order equations in their various forms
and continues with higher-order constant-coefficient linear equations; it also includes
an account of Laplace transform methods. Throughout, the theory is illustrated by
applications to biology and mechanics.

### Homework/Textbook

Homework will be regularly assigned.  Pop quizzes will be given and all the problems in the quizzes will be very close to homework problems.

The textbook we shall use is Fundamentals of Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems, 7th Edition,
by R. Kent Nagle, Edward B. Saff and Arthur David Snider.

### Final Grades:  There will be three mid-term exams ( 20% each), one final exam (30%) and many pop quizzes (10%), all based on suggested homework problems.

The tentative arrangement for the four mid-term exams is

Exam 1 January 28, 20%

Exam 2 February 25, 20%

Exam 3, April 8, 20%

Final Exam:  May 2 (Thursday), 3:00pm-5:00pm.  30%

Pop Quizzes 10%

### A weekly schedule of topics and assignments:

Weeks 1 Chapter 1. week 2-5 Chapter 2, Week 7 Chapter 3, Week 8-11 Chapter 4, Week 12: Chapter 5, Week 13-16 Chapter 7.

Grades will then be assigned based upon the following scale: A 90% – 100% B+ 85% – 89% B 80% – 84% C+ 75% – 79% C 70% – 74% D+ 65% -69% D 60% – 64% E 0% – 59%

### Attendance and Late Policy

Attendance of lectures is voluntary. Make-up exams can be allowed if the student can provide documents to verify the EXTREMELY urgent nature of his/her absence.

ABSOLUTELY NO MAKEUPS WITHOUT MEDICAL DOCUMENTATION. Requirements for class attendance and make-up exams, assignments, and other work in this course are consistent with university policies that can be found at :

### Students that need accommodation

Students with disabilities requesting accommodations should first register with the Disability Resource Center (352-392-8565, www.dso.ufl.edu/drc/) by providing appropriate documentation. Once registered, students will receive an accommodation letter which must be presented to the instructor when requesting accommodation. Students with disabilities should follow this procedure as early as possible in the semester.
