All Students should be aware that the Department of Mathematical Sciences takes the NJIT Honor code very seriously and enforces it strictly. This means there must not be any forms of plagiarism, i.e., copying of homework, class projects, or any form of cheating in quizzes and exams. Under the Honor Code, students are obligated to report any such activities to the Instructor.

Instructor: Prof.
Matveev
◘
Textbook: Applied Partial Differential
Equations by Richard Haberman (4^{th}
ed.) Pearson PrenticeHall, ISBN:
0130652431
◘
Grading Policy: The final grade in
this course will be determined as follows:
• Quizzes & Homework: 

25% 
• MATLAB Projects: 

10% 
• Midterm Exam: 

30% 
• Final Exam: 

35% 
Please note that the University Drop Date November 3, 2008 deadline will be strictly enforced.
◘ Quiz Policy: Quizzes will be given weekly, covering the material from the homework. The NJIT Honor Code applies to all quizzes, and will be strictly enforced.
◘
Homework Policy: Homework will be assigned, but will be collected and graded
only occasionally, on days specified by the instructor. However, students are strongly
advised to do their homework even when it is not collected, since homework is
essential to the learning process. The Quizzes will be designed to test the homework
performance.
◘ Projects: Two MATLAB assignments will be given, to help you visualize (and make sense of) the solutions you will be calculating. If you prefer, you can use Mathematica or Maple instead of MATLAB. No collective work is allowed on any of the assignments.
◘ Makeup Exam Policy: No makeup exams are given in accordance with the policy of the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
◘ Attendance and Participation: Ontime attendance and full participation in class is expected of every student. Cell phones and similar devices must be silenced.
