### Matthew Leingang

Hill Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Rutgers University

Deparment of Mathematics

Matthew Leingang, `<leingang@math>`. My office is Hill Center
510, where I will have a dedicated office hour Tuesday afternoon, 5th
period (2:50-4:10PM). I will also be around most Thursday and Friday
afternoons.

You are responsible for attending all class meetings. Poor
attendance will be a factor in deciding borderline grade
situations.

Mondays and Wednesdays, 6:10-7:30 PM (7th period), Hill
Center Room 124.

Laplace transforms, numerical solution of ordinary differential
equations, Fourier series, and separation of variables method
applied to the linear partial differential equations of
mathematical physics (heat, wave, and Laplace's equation).

Various numbers will help determine your final grade in
Math 421.

There is a large list of problems from each section for which
you are responsible. They will be collected each Monday. One
problem from each section will be graded.

### Warning

Late homework will not be accepted.
There are at least two quizzes which will occur in lecture.
Quizzes are short, computational in nature, and derived directly
from the homework.

There are two midterms, each in class, one on October 9 and
one on November 13.

Time and place will be determined later.

No calculators of any kind are allowed on the midterms or
final.

The following weights are assigned to compute your Math 421
average.

Gradelet | Weight |
---|

Midterm I | 20% |

Midterm II | 20% |

Final | 40% |

Homework | 10% |
