|Calculator:||You will need a scientific calculator that graphs functions.
The recommended models are TI-82, TI-83, TI-83 Plus, TI-84,
TI-84 Plus, TI-89, TI-89 Titanium and TI-92. Please do not
use a TI-nSpire for this course. These
recommended calculators may be used on tests and on the final
examination. Text-capable or networked devices
|Objectives:||To develop elementary modeling and problem solving
skills in ordinary differential equations.
|Outcomes:||Course participants should be able to discuss topics
in differential equations, as well as use modeling
techniques to answer basic questions.
|Assessment:||The course grade employs a total of 500 points. Each student’s grade will be based upon the percentage of points earned according to the following scale.|
|Tests (2 @ 100 pts. ea.)||200 pts.|
|Homework (5 @ 30 pts. ea.)||150 pts.|
|Comprehensive Final Examination||150 pts.|
|A - 90%||450 - 500 pts.|
|B - 80%||400 - 449 pts.|
|C - 70%||350 - 499 pts.|
|D - 60%||300 - 349 pts.|
|F||<= 299 pts.|
- Tests There will be two 100 point tests and
a 150 point comprehensive final examination. You’ll need to show
your work in writing on test problems in order to receive full
credit. Problems presented on tests may not be exact
‘clones’ of problems found in the text, and some independent
thought may be required. If you must miss a test, you’ll need
to make an explicit agreement with the instructor in advance of
the scheduled test date for a make-up test. Tests will occur as
per the attached class
schedule . Phone messages relating a student’s inability
to attend a test will not be accepted as a rescheduling
arrangement. YOU MUST TALK TO THE INSTRUCTOR
BEFORE THE TEST TO ARRANGE A MAKE-UP TEST.
- Homework Daily homework assignments
will not be turned in for a grade. However, homework
review/problem solving sessions based on this material will be
held at each class meeting. Five short homework
assignments requiring more careful write-ups will be assigned
and turned in for 30 points each. Homework assignments must be
turned in on the day the instructor asks for them in class.
Homework that is turned in late will be subject to penalties.
Homework turned in more than four weeks after the due date will
receive no credit.
- Final The
final examination will be written by the Mathematics
Department. The final examination will occur at 16:00 - 17:55 p.m.
Wednesday May 11. Phone messages relating a student’s
inability to attend the final examination will not be accepted
as a rescheduling arrangement. YOU MUST TALK TO THE INSTRUCTOR
BEFORE THE TEST TO ARRANGE A MAKE-UP TEST. DO NOT SCHEDULE
PERSONAL TRAVEL PLANS THAT MAY CONFLICT WITH THIS DATE.
- Attendance Class attendance is expected.
Attendance will be not be formally recorded, and it is not included
in grading procedures. When you miss a class, it’s strongly
recommended that you contact other students or the instructor to
get up to date on announcements, homework, etc.
- Assignments Students should read all
sections of the textbook mentioned in the class schedule,
and are responsible for this material. It’s very
important to attend class regularly and extremely important
to work through daily homework assignments in a timely fashion.
Keep in mind that it can be very difficult to catch up once
you fall behind on the course material.
- Accommodations Students with disabilities

academic accommodations associated with this course. Failure to
make those arrangements with the instructor and the Coordinator
of Accessibility Services in a timely fashion may negatively
impact your grade. Students with registered learning, physical
or psychological disabilities, who require accommodations for
this course should contact both the instructor and the
