**02/07/2014: Please see Exams for exam room assignments.**- 02/05/2014: University closed, lecture canceled due to snow. Since we will not have time to address substitutions in 1st order ODEs before HW2 is due, please do just problems 1-7. The due date for HW2 remains 02/06/2014 in recitation.
- 01/21/2014: Add/drop forms for this course are approved and signed by the Math Dept office, W383 Kingsbury Hall. The instructor and TAs cannot sign these forms.

Homework policies. Homeworks are due most Thursdays in recitation.

homework | due | solutions | topic | notes |
---|---|---|---|---|

HW1 | 01/30 | HW1 solns | separable & 1st order linear | |

HW2 | 02/06 | HW2 solns | exact equations & substitutions | don't do problems 8-10 |

HW3 | 02/20 | HW3 solns | 2nd-order const coeff homogeneous, reduction of order | problem 10: assume |

HW4 | 02/27 | HW4 solns | judicious guessing | |

HW5 | 03/27 | HW5 solns | Laplace transforms | lots of problems, so get started early! |

HW6 | 04/03 | HW6 solns | Laplace transforms, s and t translation, delta function | |

HW7 | 04/22 | HW7 solns | power series method | note revised due date |

HW8 | 05/01 | HW8 solns | systems of differential equations |

Exam policies. Exams 1-3 will be held during lecture time, 1:10-2:00pm.

exam 1 | M 2/10 | 1st order eqns | last year's exam and solutions | exam1 |

exam 2 | W 3/5 | 2nd & higher order eqns | last year's exam and solutions, and some var. of params problems and solutions | |

exam 3 | M 4/7 | Laplace transforms | last year's exam and solutions (there's a sign error in solution to the EC problem) | |

final | W 5/14 | everything | last year's final exam and solutions |
