Your final exam is Monday, January 13th, 2003 at 9:15 am

The exam will be held in Emerson.
Emerson 210 (A-G)
Emerson 305 (H-K)
Emerson 105 (L-Z)
The final is three hours long and will be weighted to emphasize differential equations.

New Postings as of Sunday 1/5 :
(1.) A review sheet on differential equations, complete with problems and solutions

(2.) Another, more qualitative review sheet on differential equations (Take Two) plus
(3.) Solutions to Review Problems on Differential Equations, Take Two

(4.) Full solutions to the Differential Equations Handout homework problem #16 (to replace the other posted solutions.)

Posted Final Exams
We have posted 4 old finals plus solutions on the Exams page. Please note that different material is emphasized and covered different terms. You should expect to have at least one question on the final on systems of differential equations and at least one question on second order differential equations, even though some old finals are missing these. Review problem on differential equations supplement the old finals.

Please check with your section leader for your section's reading period class meetings.

Running List of Corrections
Differential Eqns Review #6: y'(0) = 10 pi not 5

Solutions to Fall 99 final #8: the differ'l eqn is BOTH first order linear AND separable. The answer is y = Ce^(x^2/2) - 1.. (The exponent got cut off.)

Diff. Eqns Take two: Part of #8 is mysteriously absent. The equation is x'' +x' + 4x =0
and the initial conditions are x(0) = -1 and x'(0) = -1.

Coursewide Review Sessions are scheduled as follows:

Thur. Jan. 9th, 7:30 - 9:30pm - Hall A Pete Clark on Series
Fri. Jan. 10th, 1-3pm - Hall B Robin Gottlieb on Diff. Eqns
Sat. Jan. 11th, 11am-1pm - Hall D Alex Popa on Integration
Sun. Jan. 12th, 3-5pm - Hall D Albert Chau on Diff. Eqns

If there are any changes to this we will post them here.
