*Notice* —
For students wishing to join this class, the procedure is as
follows. You should attend class during the first week and
sign in, giving your name and ID number. On Friday Jan 22
this information will be given to the math department, and
decisions will be made about who gets in. I have no say in the
matter. If you don't get permission to enroll into a 3113
section by the end of the second week, you will have the
opportunity to discuss your situation with someone.

Note: if you are already enrolled in another section of 3113, it is very unlikely they will let you switch.

Also, if you are enrolled, and you miss the first two class periods, you will be dropped automatically.

*Textbook* —
*Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems (5th
ed)*, by C. Henry Edwards, David E. Penney, and David
T. Calvis, Pearson, 2015, ISBN 0-321-79698-5. You are
responsible for doing the correct homework problems, which are

*Grading* —
Your grades will be posted regularly on D2L (http://learn.ou.edu).
It is your responsiblity to monitor your own grades for
accuracy.
Any mistake should be reported to me right away so it can be
remedied. Your final grade will be computed from homework
assignments and quizzes, three midterm exams, and a
comprehensive final exam, weighted as follows:

Homework/Quizzes | 18%/2% | More details below. |

Three midterms | 50% | Lowest 10%, other two 20% each |

Final | 30% | Comprehensive |

Final letter grades will be given according to the following scale:

A | B | C | D | F |

100-90 | 89-75 | 74-60 | 59-45 | 44-0 |

*Homework* —
Homework will be assigned regularly, and due (usually) on
Mondays by **3 pm**. It can be turned in during class or
brought to my office (under the door is fine). Late homework
will *not* be accepted under any circumstances. I will
drop your two lowest homework scores.

You are allowed to work with each other in small groups. However, you will need to prepare individual written solutions.

Your homework must be neat and legible, with your full name and section number written clearly on the top. The pages must be stapled, and all spiral notebook fringes must be removed. Otherwise, the homework will not be accepted.

*Pop Quizzes* — I will give occasional short
quizzes in class, often dealing with recent concepts (even from
the previous lecture). You should make every effort to keep up
with the material. The lowest two quiz scores will be dropped.

*Exams* — There will be three exams during
the course, given during the regular lecture time. All exams
must be taken at the scheduled times, except in extraordinary
circumstances. *Please do not arrange travel plans that
conflict with these dates.*

The final exam will be held in the usual lecture room at the time shown below. University regulations require that it be held at this time.

Three exams | Wed 2/17, Wed 3/23, and Wed 4/20 |

Final Exam, Section 1 | Tuesday 5/10, 1:30-3:30 pm |

Final Exam, Section 9 | Thursday 5/12, 8:00-10:00 am |
