Math 2720 (Vector Calculus &
Linear
Algebra) with a C grade or

better, or equivalent transfer credit.

TEXT : *Differential
Equations & Linear Algebra*
(2nd
ed) by Edwards and Penney, Prentice Hall.

You may be able to save money by ordering on the internet, in which
case you will need the

ISBN number : 0-13-148146-0. The optional *Student Solutions
Manual* contains worked-out

solutions
to most of the odd numbered
problems.

SYLLABUS :
First-order equations, mathematical
models
and numerical methods, linear algebra,

higher-order linear equations, linear systems, stability, phase plane
analysis, and Laplace transforms.

TECHNOLOGY : It
is required that you have a graphing
calculator.
If you don’t own one,

get a TI-89 (includes a diff eq menu, plus symbolic algebra and
calculus).
You will also be

doing computer projects using the computer algebra system *Maple*,
which can be found on all

open-lab computers . For a discounted version of Maple for your personal

COURSE PLAN :
There will be unannounced short quizzes on occasion, with open books,

papers, etc. These are intended to encourage you to keep
current. See this web page often

for a list of
current exercises. They are not to be submitted as
homework, but you should have

them prepared by the indicated
date. To accommodate the occasional
illness, the lowest two quizzes

will be dropped. There will be no makeups for missing quizzes.

Extra credit will be given to those who
present solutions to selected
problems on the board.

Exams are “closed book”, but
you may bring your
calculator and a 3x5 formula card.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY:
You are responsible for making yourself
aware
of and understanding

the policies and procedures in the Undergraduate Catalog
(pp. 278-283) that pertain to Academic

Integrity. These policies include cheating, fabrication, falsification
and forgery, multiple submission,

plagiarism, complicity and computer misuse. If there is reason to
believe
you have been involved in

academic dishonesty, you will be referred to the Office of Student
Conduct. You will be given the

opportunity to review the charge(s). If you believe you are not
responsible,
you will have the opportunity

for a hearing. You should consult with me if you are uncertain about
an issue of academic honesty

prior to the submission of an assignment or test.
