Unformatted text preview: Math 205 Policy Statement Fall, 2006 1. Instructor: See Staff. 2. Text: Peterson-Sochacki, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations. Se- lected portions of Chapters 1-6 will be covered, with additional material on Section 5.5 (Jordan Canonical Form) and Section 6.3 (Systems of Homogeneous Differential Equations with Nondiagonalizable Coefficients). 3. Attendance: Attendence is required in class. Homework will be assigned in each period from the list below; additional problems may be assigned. 4. Homework: There will be 100 points for material assigned specifically for your lecture. This may consist of graded homework, in-class quizzes or some combination.

A portion of each weekly assignment, usually 3-4 problems, will be selected and graded in your Lecture. These selections may reflect the emphasis of topics in your lecture. You should be sure to make corrections on the topics on the graded problems, as well as preparing all topics on the daily homework; except if a specific section is removed from the exam syllabus, when...
