Notes on Diffy Qs, by Yours Truly,
Available at https://www.jirka.org/diffyqs/ for download or browsing,
or on amazon as a cheap paperback.

The plan is to cover chapters 3, 8, 4, (and perhaps 5 if there's any time left) in that order.

We will be using Gradescope (http://gradescope.com) for all exams. Create an account. I will provide (in class) an Add code that will add you to the class.

The grading scheme is given below:

$\begin{multline} \text{Grade} = 0.2 \times \text{(Homework)} + 0.2 \times \text{(Exam 1)} \\ + 0.2 \times \text{(Exam 2)} + 0.4 \times \text{(Final Exam)} \end{multline}$

To account for bad exam day, etc..., an alternative grade will be computed as follows

$\begin{multline} \text{Grade} = 0.2 \times \text{(Homework)} + 0.1 \times \text{(Exam 1)} \\ + 0.1 \times \text{(Exam 2)} + 0.58 \times \text{(Final Exam)} \end{multline}$

A second alternative (to account for bad final day) will be follows

$\begin{multline} \text{Grade} = 0.2 \times \text{(Homework)} + 0.3 \times \text{(Exam 1)} \\ + 0.3 \times \text{(Exam 2)} + 0.18 \times \text{(Final Exam)} \end{multline}$

The highest of the three will be used for your grade. Notice that in the alterative schemes, the score does not sum to 100 percent. That is on purpose! You should count on the first scheme, the second/third schemes are only to account for things going terribly terribly wrong on one of your exams.

## Exams:

Exam 1: Tuesday, September 25, (in class)

Exam 2: Thursday, November 1, (in class)

Final Exam: Thursday, December 13, 2:00-3:50pm (same room as the class), Comprehensive, think of the final exam as half exam 3 and half comprehensive final

Exam Policies: No books, calculators or computers allowed on the exams or the final. One page (one sided) of notes allowed on the exams.

## Homework:

Assigned weekly (some weeks may be skipped). Homework will be done using WeBWorK. Go to:
https://webwork.math.okstate.edu/webwork2/MATH-4233-F18/
You have been/will be sent instruction on how to log in by email sometime in the first week of class.

Lowest 2 homework grades dropped (so no late homeworks).

## Missed Work:

No makeup or late homework (two lowest are dropped anyhow). For exams, there will be reasonable accommodation if you have a valid and documented reason, and the documentation is provided in advance unless absolutely impossible. If you have a university approved (see the syllabus attachment) final conflict exam, you must tell me at least two weeks befre the final exam week, so so that we can figure out what to do.
