This site is where to go for all information about this class, including assignments. Blackboard will only be used for the online grade book.
A first course in ordinary differential equations. First order equations and applications, linear equations with constant coefficients, linear systems, Laplace transforms, numerical methods of solution. Prereq: MATH 223.
We will cover most of the material in chapters 1–3 of the textbook, and selected topics from chapters 4–7. In addition to attending the lectures, you should be reading the text book since there won't be time to discuss all the material in class.
Assignments will be posted on this page (not on Blackboard!).
Students may work together on homework. However, each student must figure out how to write up his or her own solution to be turned in. That means for example that you and a friend may figure out together how to prove a statement, but the written-out solutions you turn in should not be verbatim copies of each other.
