Logistics: Math 2250-1 meets MTWF 8:35-9:25 a.m. in WEB L 104. If you are enrolled in this lecture class then you are also enrolled in our section 2250-6, which meets Thursdays 8:35-9:25 a.m., in JFB 103. Sections will be run by our course TA Kyle Steffen. On two of these Thursdays (September 27 and November 8) you will take your midterm exams. On the other Thursdays you will discuss concepts and homework problems. You will hand in weekly homework assignments and take weekly quizzes at the start of class on Fridays.
I hold office hours MW 2:20-3:00 p.m., T 11:50-12:40, Th 9:40-10:30 a.m. in my office LCB 204. If you need to see me outside of these times, we can set up an appointment. You're free to drop by my office whenever you want, but I'll chase you away if I'm busy. (Also, I'll be spending about half my time in the Associate Chair office JWB 236, and won't be available then.) My phone number is 801-581-7318 and my email address is korevaar "at" math.utah.edu. We will also organize TA office hours.

understanding mathematics  is the top google hit for that query. If you're having trouble in this class it could be that you need to rethink how you try to learn mathematics, and that link might help.
The Kahn Academy is another good on-line resource - there is a video collection explaining many of the key ideas in differential equations and linear algebra, among other topics, at this site.
2250spring12 is the directory from my Math 2250 class this past spring. You can get a good idea of how I plan to teach the current class by looking at that page and its links.
