Instructor: Dr. Hoon Hong, SAS (Math/Stat) 3274, hong@ncsu.edu, Office Hour: M-F 11:25-12:00
Grader: Yahe Yu SAS 4223, yyu29@ncsu.edu, Office Hour: W 1:00-2:30 and F 1:00-2:30

Textbook: No textbook will be used. The lecture is self-contained.
Reference: Optional. Fundamentals of Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems, by Nagle, Saff and Snider, Addison-Wesley
Objectives: Learn how to set up, solve and apply ordinary differential equations.
Prerequisites: MA 242 (credit is not allowed for both MA341 and MA301)

Homeworks: HW1.pdf, HW2.pdf, HW3.pdf
You are strongly urged do all the relevant homeworks before you come the next lecture.
Postponing the homeworks is unwise and detrimental.
Supplements: Linear Algebra

Grading: The letter grade will be determined from the total numeric grade as follows:
Letter Grade A+ A A- B+ B B- C+ C C- D+ D D- F
Total Numeric Grade >= 97.00 >= 93.00 >= 90.00 >= 87.00 >= 83.00 >= 80.00 >= 77.00 >= 73.00 >= 70.00 >= 67.00 >= 63.00 >= 60.00 < 60.00

The total numeric grade will be the sum of several numeric grades as follows:
Type Test 1 Test 2 Test 3 Attendance Total
Max Numeric grade 30 30 30 10 100

Tests:
Test 1     July 5 (Wed). Answer
Test 2     July 18 (Tue). Answer
Test 3     July 28 (Fri). Answer

All tests are closed book/notes.
You should bring calculators to the tests.
However, you are NOT allowed to bring computer algebra systems such as Maple to the tests.
Attendance: Required .
The attendance grade is calculated as "10 * the number of attended classes / the total number of classes".
(Officially excused absence will be counted toward attended classes).
Seats will be assigned at the beginning of the semester.
Instructor will not provide extra-help on missed lectures, unless there is an official excuse.
