|Prerequisites||Math 141 (Calculus II) or equivalent.|
|Lectures||MWF 2:00 - 2:50, Math 0103.|
|Instructor||Bo Li (Office hours: W 3:00 - 4:00, Th 11:00 - 12:00; Office: Math 4304; Phone: 301-405-5088; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).|
|Grader||Sunhee Kim (E-mail: email@example.com).|
|Homework||Assigned regularly and graded partially. There are two types of homework: one is analytical and the other Matlab related. For an analytical type of homework, exercise problems are chosen from the first textbook Elementary Differential Equations. For a Matlab related homework, exercise problems are chosen from the second textbook Differential Equations with Matlab. Note: no late homework will be accepted unless a written verification of a valid excuse (such as hospitalization, family emergency, religious observance, court appearance, etc.) is provided and approved by the instructor.|
There will be two midterm and one final, close-book and close-note exams.
The final exam will be cumulative.
Midterm exam 1: 2:00 -- 2:50, Friday, October 5, 2001, Math 0103.
Midterm exam 2: 2:00 -- 2:50, Friday, November 16, 2001, Math 0103.
Final exam: 1:30 -- 3:30, Thursday, December 13, 2001.
Note: neither rescheduled nor make-up exams will be allowed unless a written verification of a valid excuse (such as hospitalization, family emergency, religious observance, court appearance, etc.) is provided and approved by the instructor.
|Grading||The final course grade will be determined based on the exams and homework with the following weights: final exam -- 40%, midterm exam 1 -- 20%, midterm exam 2 -- 20%, homework of analytical type -- 10%, homework related to Matlab -- 10%. The final grade will be curved.|
