MATH 442 Intro to Partial Differential Equations, Fall 2019

Course Home | Lectures | Homework | Exams | Discussion Board

Homework of 5 problems will be assigned each week except when there is an exam. Please staple or paper-clip your homework sheets (no folding over corners). You are expected to spell correctly and write complete, grammatical sentences when possible. No late homework is accepted. But the lowest homework score (possibly zero) will be omitted in computing your homework average.

Collaboration is strongly encouraged in studying and working the homework! But you must write the solution in your own words. You may be able to find websites which help you understand the material in the class. But do not copy homework solutions from online sources.

The problems numbers refer to the course textbook.
