Text: Boyce and Diprima, Elementary differential equations and
boundary value problems, 8th edition.
We will cover sections 1.1-3, 2.1-3, 3.1-6,8,9, 6.1-6, 7.1-6,9.
Midterm test 1: Monday, October 20th
Midterm test 2: Monday, November 17th
Final exam: TBA
The breakdown of marks between course elements will be as follows:
Final exam: 50%. Midterms: 20% each. HW, quizzes and other activities: 10%.
Missing a midterm normally results in a mark of 0. Exceptions may be
granted in two cases: prior consent of the instructor or a medical
emergency. In the latter case, the instructor must be notified within 48
hours of the missed test, and presented with a doctor's note immediately
upon the student's return to UBC. No make-up midterms will be given.
Term marks may be scaled up or down on a
classwide basis, depending on performance on the final exam. This is to ensure
fairness across both sections of the course.
Homework will be regularly assigned and must be turned in on time.
homework will not be accepted.
