Math 53: Ordinary Differential Equations with Linear Algebra
Instructor: Michael Hutchings
(3/21) The final grades are done. If you gave me a secret code,
your grade should be posted here. I think
that as a class you did very well. I'm off for spring break now.
(3/5) It is now very easy to minor in mathematics .
Under the newly revised requirements, it is enough to take the 50
series plus three higher courses. (The 50 series classes can count
simultaneously for a minor in math and for a major in another subject that
requires them.) Click here for
the official requirements. If you have questions about which courses
to choose, I'll be happy to discuss it.
(3/5) I was supposed to make up an extra credit
assignment and I forgot. But if you would still like a
small amount of extra credit, see me. You could for instance do one
of the computer projects in the book or work through a section of the
book which we didn't do in class.

(2/4) Next week I will move my Thursday office hours to Tuesday, 3:30-5:00. Jacob will move his Wednesday office hour to Tuesday from 2:00-3:30.
(1/20) There is a Math 51/52/53 consulting center. The hours are
Sun 7-9pm, Mon 7-10pm, Tue 7-8pm, Wed 7-9pm, Thu 7-9pm. The room is
(1/4) Due to a miscommunication, before the New Year the
bookstore listed the wrong textbook for this course. The textbook is
not Multivariable calculus, Stanford custom
edition by Barr, Edwards, and Penney. (That is the book for Math
51 and 52.) The textbook for this course is Differential
equations: computing and modeling by Edwards and Penney, and it
should arrive in the bookstore early this week.
Up to Stanford
