## Notices

• 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.
• 01/24/2014: Changed homework due dates on syllabus to Thursdays in recitation, and revised number of points off for missing or illegible names, etc. on policies.
• 01/21/2014: You are responsible for reading and understanding the course policies and syllabus.
• 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

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

## Exams

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

The final exam is scheduled for Wednesday, May 14th, 1:00-3:00pm. Room assignment is by last name
