|Course Objectives:||This is the
second part of a two-course sequence intended to provide a
good foundation in the various areas of applicable mathematics for
graduate students of mathematics, statistics, science and engineering.
This course emphasizes on Fourier's methods, partial differential
equations, and their applications. This course is designed to provide
indepth understanding of the underlying concepts and the basic
techniques of solving partial differntial equations.

will be assigned regularly. Most of the homework will not be
collected or graded. However, some homework may be collected and the
score will be added to the quiz score. Note that, all homework problems
cannot be discussed in
due to time constraints. Please see me during office hours (or by
appointment) to discuss homework problems. You are encouraged to
homework problems with others.
|Quizzes:||There will be a 15-minute quiz (almost) every Monday. One (or two) worst quiz grade(s) may be dropped at the end of the semester. If you miss a quiz, there will be NO make-up quiz. For legitimate reasons such as those mentioned in the makeup exam policy, your score for the next quiz will be counted twice, upon presentation of valid proofs.|
|Exams:||There will be two in class exams during
the semester and one final exam at the end of the semester for this
|Makeup Exam Policy:||There will be absolutely NO makeup Exams. In rare unfortunate situations such as illness, death in the family, accident etc., you must notify me of your inability to take the exam, immediately. In all cases, you must present proof for missing the exam. Acceptable forms of proof are doctor's certificate, police report, funeral home announcements etc., and these should clearly state the date and time. Under such circumstances, your score for the Final Exam may be counted towards the Exam(s) you missed.|
|Notification of course grades:||Final
grades will be posted to student accounts on PAWS. The confidentiality
policy of the school does not permit the grades to be emailed or
notified by phone.
|Attendance:||Attendance is mandatory. You are required to attend all lectures and lab hours. You are permitted three (3) unexcused absences. Every additional absence will result in your final grade to drop one letter. You are responsible for the material covered in class whether or not you were present.|
|Calculators:||You are allowed to use calculators in class. You may be allowed to use calculators on some quizzes, but not on most of the quizzes and exams.|
|Cellphones / Beepers Policy:||Use of cell
phones and beepers is not
permitted in the classroom at any time.
If you have a cell phone or a beeper they must be kept on silent mode
in the class. These devices are disruptive to the class and a student
violating these policies will be asked to leave the classroom.
|Disabilities:||If you have a disability that requires academic accommodations, please see Ms. Andrea Agnew (Student Center 270, Phone: (251) 460-7212), obtain a certificate verifying the disability and provide it to me.|
|Disclaimer:||The requirements and policies may be modified as circumstances dictate. Such changes will be provided to you in class and in writing.|
