Mathematics 467, Section 900, Fall 2017
Last updated Sat 16 Dec 2017
Announcements (reverse chronological order)
- Dec 16: Grades will be visible in eCampus very soon. Explanations:
- The Class Participation column includes
- team presentations in class
- team writeups on the web (the "Discussions" column)
- miscellaneous class participation points
- 1/2 point for each time you signed the attendance sheet
- The HWScaled column is the Htot column times (80/180).
- To see the formula for each calculated column (except HWScaled),
click on "Grading Criteria" in that item on your eCampus grade page.
- To get the letter grades I added 20 points to the Course Total.
(These points are NOT included in the CourseTotal column.)
I think of these as:
- a 10-point upward adjustment of the (rather arbitrary)
class participation scores.
- a 10-point curve on the final exam.
- eCampus does not show sensible statistics for letter grades.
Suffice it to say that the median grade is B.
- Dec 15: Grades will not be available until sometime late Saturday.
Test keys have been installed below.
- Dec 1: Last call for Discussion contributions on Chapter 4!
- Oct 26: Discussion topics for your Chapter 4 team solutions
have been created. Please finish your Chapter 3 contributions soon, so
that they can be graded.
- Oct 16: Revised term papers are due Monday, Oct. 23
(not Oct. 20 as previously announced).
- Oct 1: Tomorrow's office hour (Oct. 2) will be at
2, not 3.
- Sep 17: Tomorrow's office hour (Sept. 18) will be at
4:20, not 3 (nor 4:00, as previously stated here). Probably I will also
be around between 2 and 3.
- Sep 14: Next
Math Club meeting,
Sept. 19 (ODE spectrum and zeta function)
- Aug 30:
- The Tuesday office hour will be 1:00-1:50 (not
3:00-3:50 as on the handout).
- Office hours begin Friday, Sept 8.

solutions will be turned on after your assignments are due.]

[These links start out pointing to previous semesters' notes.
They will be replaced as I make revisions.]
[These will become available at the links below as the course
develops. Analogues from previous semesters are visible on the old home
pages; they won't change much.]
(Of course, these do not exist until after the test.
Old tests, with solutions to most non-essay questions,
are visible on the old home pages.)
