ORC Course Description: This course is a survey of important types of differential equations, both linear and non-linear. Topics include the study of systems of ordinary differential equations using eigenvectors and eigenvalues, numerical solutions of first and second order equations and of systems, and the solution of elementary partial differential equations using Fourier series.

 

Prerequisites:  Math 13.

 

Textbook: R. Boyce and W. Di Prima Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems 11-th edition

 

 

Written homework will be assigned after each lecture. The written homework assignment can be found here. All homework  will generally be due by Canvas on Wednesday following the week when it  was assigned, unless announced otherwise.

 

Late homework will not be accepted unless it is excused in advance for serious reasons. Unexcused late and missing papers count zero.

Honors Code: Collaboration on Homework is permitted and encouraged but NO COPYING. On exams NO HELP given or received and no calculators. In general, when in doubt, ask before doing. Please see also the Statement of Community Standards and Accountability that  explains the Academics Honors Principle.

Disabilities:  Students requesting disability-related accommodations and services for this course are encouraged to schedule a phone/Zoom meeting with me as early in the term as possible. This conversation will help to establish what supports are built into my course. In order for accommodations to be authorized, students are required to consult with Student Accessibility Services (SAS; Getting Started with SAS webpage; student.accessibility.services@dartmouth.edu; 603-646-9900) and to request an accommodation email be sent to me. We will then work together with SAS if accommodations need to be modified based on the learning environment. If students have questions about whether they are eligible for accommodations, they should contact the SAS office. All inquiries and discussions will remain confidential.

 

Mental Health: The academic environment at Dartmouth is challenging, our terms are intensive, and classes are not the only demanding part of your life. There are a number of resources available to you on campus to support your wellness, including your undergraduate dean (http://www.dartmouth.edu/~chd/ ) and the Student Wellness Center http://www.dartmouth.edu/~healthed ).

 

Student Religious Observances: Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that occur during this academic term. If you have a religious observance that conflicts with your participation in the course, please meet with me before the end of the second week of the term to discuss appropriate accommodations.
