**COURSE
PHILOSOPHY:**

** **Understanding differential
equations will enhance your future work in mathematics, the physical and
biological sciences, computer science, and engineering. In this course, our
objectives are to build upon your introduction to differential equations in
Mathematics 13 and the linear algebra you studied in Mathematics 63, to
reinforce and generalize the basic concepts learned there, and to give you both
a theoretical and practical foundation for understanding applications of
systems of differential equations.

**GRADING:
**The
homework is worth 30% of your overall grade. The two tests are each worth 35%
of your overall grade

Homework: Turn in
at beginning of class on due date. Weekly homework assignments will be posted
each week by Friday at around 3 PM and will be due in class the following
Wednesday. Please *staple* your
homework and write your name, course and section number, homework assignment
number, and due date on it. For example:

**HONOR
CODE:**
All *tests* are strictly individual; no
cooperation is allowed. However, working together on understanding the reading
and solving the assigned **homework** problems is strongly encouraged.
Comprehension is the goal! Consequently, every student must write up his/her
own homework solutions separately. Note that many odd-numbered problems in the
text have solutions, or at least answers, given in the back of the book. **Verbatim
copying of the solutions, either from another person or from a book, will be
considered an honor code violation. **
