**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.

### Important Dates:

Midterm test 1: Monday, October 20th
Midterm test 2: Monday, November 17th
Final exam: TBA

### Grading

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

Homework will be regularly assigned and must be turned in on time.
Late
homework will not be accepted.
