Syllabus

Differential Equations; Spring 2017; MTH244

The following calendar gives a timetable for the course. Your class may be slightly behind or ahead at any given time. Below the calendar is a list of sections in the textbook Applied Differential Equations. The Primary Course", by Vladimir Dobrushkin. CRC Press, 2015; http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781439851043
https://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781439851050

Some of these may be done in class, others as homework. You should attempt them all. (Note: In the problem lists, a notation like 3-9 means that all the problems 3,4,5,6,7,8,9 are assigned.)
