363 – Differential Equations

### SYLLABUS

### Meeting Time: MWF 2:30 – 3:20 pm – KT 216

### Office: KT 290, tel*.* 481-6382, *e-mail*: dragnevp@ipfw.edu

### Office Hours: MTWR 5:00-6:00 pm, MWF 2:00-2:30 pm

### Book: Nagle/Saff/Snider – *Fundamentals of Differential
Equations and Boundary Value Problems – 4*^{th} ed.

### Course Description: I shall cover chapters 1, 2, 4, 6
– 11. The main content of the course is devoted to *first order differential equations, higher order differential
equations, systems of first order equations, series solutions, integral
transforms, introduction to partial differential equations: separation of
variables, Fourier series, Sturm-Liouville equations.*

### Grading: There will be three tests (100 pts each), five group projects
(10 pts each), and daily homework
(50 pts), which will form a semester grade. The score for the course is formed
from 75% of the semester grade and 25% of a comprehensive final. The letter
grade is according to the scale:

### A 90 -100; B 80-89; C 70-79;
D 60-69; F below 59.

### No make up tests will be given
(unless proper excuse is provided).
