Information About Math 240

Our textbook is ``Advanced Engineering Mathematics'' by
Dennis Zill and Michael Cullen.
It should be on reserve in the math/physics
library and on sale in the campus bookstore.
There is a web-page for the course, which will include the homework
assignments at

http://www.math.upenn.edu/~mpugh/Teaching/Math240/math_240.html

Add it to your bookmarks. Homework and various tips will be posted
here.
Following Professor DeTurck's lead, each week there will be
Designated Front Row Seat-Warmers. That is, I will choose three or
four of you to sit in the front row. I will announce these people
through the web-page ahead of time.
This intended to encourage class participation, rather than judgment of
those in the front row. Nevertheless,
if it is your week to sit in the
front row, you should read the material ahead of
time, rather than simply intend to do so.

There will be two midterm exams and one final exam. All three
sections
of Math 240 will have the same exams and they will be held in the
evening. The dates of the exams have yet to be chosen.

Homework will be assigned daily and due weekly. Math 240 and 241 are
notorious for going at high speed. For this reason, I will not accept
late homework under any circumstances. You are better off handing in
incomplete homework than trying to hand in complete homework late.
Late homeworks tend to pile up and drag the student down, especially
in a course like this one.

Each midterm is worth 22%. The homework is worth 22%. The final
exam is worth 34%.

I will have office hours on Monday afternoons (1-2), Thursday mornings
(10:30 - 11:30), or by appointment. My office is David Rittenhouse
Lab 4C5. My email is mpugh@math.upenn.edu

Please come to me if you have any problems with the homework, the
amount of homework, the course, or anything else. The sooner we deal
with any problems you might be having, the better.
