APM 255: Differential Equations

Shaska (1999)
APM 255:
         Introduction to Differential Equations with Linear Algebra (4 credits)
Instructor          Dr. Shaska

Room:              263 SFH
Time:                TR:   19:30-21:17
Office hours:     TR: 4:30-5:30

Description:  Introduction to ordinary differential equations, Laplace transforms, linear systems, matrices, vectors, independence, Eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and applications.

Prerequisite(s): MTH 155 with a grade of 2.0 or higher.

Prerequisite
  • MTH 155 or equivalent. 

Textbook:     
  • Differential Equations and Linear Algebra, Edwards and Penney, Third Edition, Prentice Hall, ISBN-13: 978-0-13-605425-2, ISBN-10: 0-13-605425-0

Grading:
  • Homework                       10% 
  • Midterm I:                         25%   
  • Midterm II:                        25%   
  • Final                                 40%                           
  •                                  ___________
          Total                                T

Grades will be computed using the Oakland University guidelines: 
95% --> 4.0, 
50% ---> 1.0. 
Using a linear model we have   
Grade = (T-35)/15
where T is the total score for the semester.  

Course Policies
 

For all the problems and concerns you might encounter you must talk to me. No makeups will be given other then in case of documented emergencies. Cellular phones or any electronic equipment is NOT allowed during lecture. No calculators of any kind are allowed. 

Further, I do not tolerate any kind of academic dishonesty. Appropriate measures according to Oakland University regulations will be take for any case of cheating or breaking other rules. Attendance is mandatory! With more than three unexcused absences you will not be allowed to enter the final exam and will fail the course.

Email policy:

Please refrain from contacting me via email unless it is an emergency.  You are encouraged to come and talk to me during my office hours which are posted above.
