Math 307 Fall Quarter 2019



  • What you need :
      • Log in to WebAssign here to read and submit homework. You will need to buy access ($22.95) and have two weeks to comply. You don't need to buy any other Cengage products. Math307C will not use WebAssign -- Check your class website.

      • The WebAssign payment process can be a bit complicated. See these Detailed Instructions for paying for WebAssign access.

      • Recommended Textbook Boyce and Diprima, Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems or Elementary Differential Equations. Any edition is fine. Older editions cost less. A paperback version called Introduction to Differential Equations is available at the bookstore.
      • Religious Accommodation Policy: Washington state law requires that UW develop a policy for accommodation of student absences or significant hardship due to reasons of faith or conscience, or for organized religious activities. The UW’s policy, including more information about how to request an accommodation, is available at Religious Accommodations Policy. Accommodations must be requested within the first two weeks of the course using the Religious Accommodations Request form.
