### First Exam

### The first exam covered material up to (but not including) linear second
order differential equations with constant coefficients in which the
characteristic polynomial has complex roots.

### Second Exam

### The second exam covered material not on the first exam
and then up to series solutions about a regular singular point, but not
with indicial roots that differ by an integer.

### The Third Exam will be given at noon on Monday, April 29 in 106B1 in Engineering Hall

### The third exam will cover material not on the first and second exams, but
beginning with solutions to differential equations with a regular singular point
with indicial roots differing by an integer, up to the end of the course.

###

### The Final Exam will be given from 7 to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8 in 140 Burrill Hall. The exam
will cover all of the material in the course.
