## Announcements

(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.
Bye!
(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.
(2/19) Want ** free pizza **? Interested in career

(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
381-B.
(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
Undergraduate Mathematics.
