**Exam 1: Tuesday, February 24, 2009.**You may bring one 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of paper containing any formulas or other information you think may be helpful during the exam. Both sides of your formula sheet may be used.**Exam 2: Tuesday, April 7, 2009. This exam covers material on the syllabus beginning with Section 3.4.**You may bring one 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of paper containing any formulas or other information you think may be helpful during the exam.

Both sides of your formula sheet may be used.**Students having a final exam conflict:**

* More than two (2) final exams on one calendar day;

* More than two (2) final exams scheduled in consecutive periods (ex: A student has exams scheduled for 4:00-7:00 pm and 8:00-11:00 pm on one day and 8:00-11:00 am on the following day;)

* Two final exams scheduled for the same exam period;

should contact me immediately to see about the possibility of scheduling a makeup exam. If necessary, the makeup exam will take place on Thursday, May 14.**Question and Answer Session: Sunday, May 10; 4:30-6:00 PM; SERC 209.**

Course information and grading

- An introduction to Maple prepared by Professor S. Greenfield. This is a good starting place if you prepared by Professor S. Greenfield. This is a good starting place if you have not used Maple before.
- Maple help pages prepared by Rutgers TA L. Pudwell. They were written with Math 251 students in mind, but should be helpful for all.

- An introduction to Maple features relevant to differential equations, with a worksheet illustrating these features. These documents are based on those prepared for earlier semesters by Professor R. Bumby.

- Just as with other homework assignments,
it is permissible and helpful to discuss Maple labs with other
students. However, the Maple lab reports that you turn in are being
graded and will be part of your final course grade. As with all such
work, the printed form of the worksheet is expected to be the work of
the student who submits it. In particular, the projects include
questions that involve your interpretation of results of Maple's
computation. Text comments that
contain your answers to these questions are expected to reflect
your
**individual understanding**of the topic.
