Office: 402 Little Hall (Top floor, NE corner) 392-0281 x270
"Maximize x, y and z."
If I am not in the office then it is best to EMAIL me, as I don't
remotely pick-up phone messages. If urgent, then telephone to the
secretaries at 392-0281.x221 and they can contact me at home.
OFFICE HOURS: http://www.math.ufl.edu/~squash/info.jksched.html
My OHs will >>VARY<< during the semester, so please check the webpage.
Currently, OHs are: Mon. and Wed. 7th period [13:55-14:45],
Fri., 5th period [11:45-12:35].
SYLLABUS: Chapters 1-8 of Nagle,Saff,Snider, 6th edition (2012),
"Fundamentals of Differential Eqns with Boundary Value Problems,"
We will cover convolutions early. We will skip section. 3.7.
OUR COURSE WEBPAGES:

http://www.math.ufl.edu/~squash/course.DfyQ.2013t.html
There is a private DiffyQ Archive page, for us to communicate with each
other. I will email you the URL.
GRADES: There'll be 3 in-class exams, and a final, each counting 20%-25%
of grade; the remaining grade comes from class-participation (CP) and microquizzes.
There are no make-ups for microquizzes, but I drop the lowest score.
EXAMS: Prereq-A: Mond., Aug26. B: Monday, 16Sept.
C: Friday, 18Oct. D: Monday,18Nov.
Final exam: Monday, Dec.9, 5:30PM-7:30PM, in our classroom.
HOMEWORK: I do not collect written HW. Rather, a substantial part of
your CP grade comes from your posting solutions to the Archive. These
are not typically assigned; it depends on your own energy and motivation.
Letters-of-recommendation (LORs): I base LOR substantially on how a
student "thinks on his feet". Before writing a LOR, I
require that a student take TWO courses with me, speaking
substantially in each. See
