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 lab assignments, 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 R. Haberman, Pearson PrenticeHall; ISBN: 0130652431.
Grading Policy: The final grade in this course will be determined as follows:
Homework +Quizzes: 

20% 
Two Midterm Exams: 

24% each 
Final Exam: 

32% 
Your final letter grade will be based on the following tentative curve:
A 
87100 

C 
6268 
B+ 
8186 

D 
5661 
B 
7580 

F 
055 
C+ 
6974 



This curve may be adjusted slightly at the end of the semester. Also note that the University Drop Date November 5, 2007 deadline will be strictly enforced.
Homework Policy: Homework will be assigned and collected each week, but will not be graded; instead, quizzes will be given each week to test the knowledge of HW material (see below). On some weeks, the Instructor may also request specific HW sets to be handed in for grading. No group discussion or interaction is allowed when working on a graded assignment. Any forms of plagiarism, i.e., copying of other students’ homework or quizzes, is very easy to detect, and will not be tolerated. Under the Honor Code, students are obligated to report any such activities to the Instructor. The Instructor is in turn obligated to report any violations of the Honor Code to the Department and NJIT administration.
Quiz Policy: There will be a 1015 minute quiz given once every week on the previous week HW set. There will be no makeup quizzes; in case of a legitimate documented reason for an absence, the missed score will be ignored when calculating the final grade. No interaction or conversation is allowed during the quiz.
Makeup Exam Policy: There will be NO makeup exams during the semester. In the event the Final Exam is not taken, under rare circumstances where the student has a legitimate reason for missing the final exam, a makeup exam will be administered by the math department. In any case the student must notify the Math Department Office and the Instructor that the exam will be missed and present written verifiable proof of the reason for missing the exam, e.g., a doctors note, police report, court notice, etc., clearly stating the date AND time of the mitigating problem.
Attendance and Participation: Students must attend all classes. Absences from class will inhibit your ability to fully participate in class discussions and problem solving sessions and, therefore, affect your grade. Tardiness to class is very disruptive to the instructor and students and will not be tolerated.
Cellular Phones: All cellular phones and beepers must be switched off during all class times.
