Check this for a list of assignments so far, possible changes in the
course schedule, and electronic copies of course handouts.

**Description of Course**:
Topics include first-order ordinary differential equations, second-order
linear
differential equations, series solutions, higher order linear and matrix
differential equations, and existence and uniqueness theorems. Not
recommended
for students who have taken 22M:034, since there is considerable overlap.
Requirements include in-class exams and a comprehensive final exam;
homework
involving problem solving is emphasized. Quizzes and/or homework will be
collected.

**Prerequisites:** 22M:027 (MATH:2700) and 22M:028 (MATH:2850), or
22M:056
(MATH:3780)

**Objectives and Goals of the Course**:
See course website for a list of sections we will
cover.
By the end of this course, you should

1.) have a good understanding of the sections covered in class and via
assigned readings.

2.) Be prepared for more theoretical courses such as 22M:055.

You should read all sections/handouts/web material corresponding to covered material and/or assigned problems. There may be test questions related to this reading even if not covered in class.

HW & Quizzes: 25% | 90% <= A- < 91% <= A |

Exam 1: 25% | 80% <= B- < 81% <= B < 89% <= B+ < 90% |

Exam 2: 25% | 70% <= C- < 71% <= C < 79% <= C+ < 80% |

Final: 25% | 60% <= D- < 61% <= D < 69% <= D+ < 70% |

F < 60% |

*GRADING & EXAMS: * All work must be shown in order
to receive credit. This holds for all exams including the final,
all quizzes, and homework.
Important note: If no work is shown, you may receive zero credit
even if your answer is correct.

2 exams and a final will be given. Locations
TBA. You are required to bring identification to all
exams. Calculators may NOT be allowed. You are
required to pick up your exams and keep them until the end of the
semester. The final exam will be cumulative.

**A Word about the Date and Time of the Final Exam:**
The final examination date and time will be announced during the first
half of the semester by
the Registrar. I will announce the final examination date and time for
this course at the course
ICON site once it is known. Do not plan your end of the semester travel
plans until the final exam
schedule is made public.

**THERE IS NO CURVE IN THIS CLASS, but improvement may be taken
into consideration.**

If there is a mistake in
grading, you must report this mistake within one week from when the
exam, homework, etc. has been handed back to the class (whether or not
you picked up your exam, homework, etc).

**Attendance and absences**: Your attendance at each scheduled
class meeting and problem section is expected. You are
responsible for material covered in class and announcements made during
class; these may include changes in the syllabus.

You may collaborate with other students on the homework; however, each individual student is responsible for turning in your own homework in your own words. Copying is not collaboration and will be prosecuted under scholastic dishonesty. Any significant collaboration should be acknowledged.

**The University policies on scholastic dishonesty will be strictly
enforced.**
