Math 2250-4 meets MTWF 10:45-11:35 a.m. in
LCB 219. If you are enrolled in this lecture class
then
you are also enrolled in section 2250-5 which meets Thursdays
10:45-11:35 in LCB 219, or in 2250-6 which meets Thursdays

Sections will be run by our course TA

On two of these Thursdays (February 14 and March 28)
you will
take your midterm exams. On the other Thursdays you will discuss
concepts and problems related to the current material and homework
assignments. You will hand in these weekly homework
assignments and take weekly quizzes, at the start of class on Fridays.
I hold office hours M,W 2:20-3:00 p.m., T,Th 11:50-12:40
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.
Course details: This
2250-4 syllabus
contains detailed course information, including course learning objectives,
outline, grading policy,
expected schedule etc. Note that you will be required to get
a grade of at least "C" on the final exam in order to get a
grade of at least "C" for the course.
Class lecture notes will be in this directory. The homework page will contain assignments (and solutions, after you hand them in). The exam page will contain weekly quiz solutions, exam review material, practice exams, and actual exams and solutions after you take them. Homework and quiz grades will be recorded on-line, using "CANVAS". You will also submit some of your computer work on-line. 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. Please contact me as well, and we'll see if there are some different or additional strategies you might employ. 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. 2250fall12 is the directory from my Math 2250 class this past fall. You can get a good idea of how I plan to teach the current class by looking at that page and its links. |
