- All classes will be online. You will need to watch
video lectures and participate in at least one live online class
each week via Zoom. Your instructor will contact you with
You will need a computer with
a webcam, internet access, and a way to produce and upload
handwritten work (your cell phone will suffice for uploading
written work). If you
don't have access to a computer,
try The Student Technology Loan
Program.You can find some documentation for Zoom below:
- Daily Information and Lecture Videos Your instructor will provide
links to video lectures, lectures notes and references to
text book sections. All sections may not use the same videos.
- Exams -- We will have
approximately 5 quizzes, each about 20 minutes long, rather
than longer exams. These will require a computer, internet
access, and a way to upload your work. A smartphone that can
photograph your written work, or a tablet that can produce a
pdf of your writing will suffice. See the instructions below
for what appears to be the simplest methods. We will use
Zoom and Gradescope during the quizzes. We will not have a
- Gradescope Assignment -- Log in to Gradescope and begin an assignment, quiz or an exam.
- Take an Online Exam using your phone -- login to Gradescope using a browser on your phone to upload a photo of your handwritten work. Its easier to read the questions on your computer, but the least complicated way to upload your answers is by taking photos from within the Gradescope page running in a browser on your phone. If you can read the questions on your phone, you don't even need to login to Gradescope on your computer.
Some related information on other ways to upload:
Log in to WebAssign here to read and submit
homework. You will not be able to login
at any other URL. If you google WebAssign, you will not find
the correct site for University of Washington. If you think you
need a "class key", you are using the wrong URL. If you are having trouble logging
in or paying for WebAssign, call the help number 800.354.9706. or
contact your instructor. Don't go to the math advising office; they
cannot help you with WebAssign.

comply. You don't need to buy any other Cengage products. In
particular, you do NOT need Cengage Unlimited

- Textbook Introduction to Differential Equations by
Boyce, Diprima, and Meade : You can access the etext from your
class Canvas page. Access is free until October 16th, then it will cost
$25. You pay the bookstore at this link. You must pay
for the book before October 16th. After that you
can no longer purchase the ebook. You can read the book online or
download and use the VitalSource reader. You can print up to 10
pages at a time as well. The downloaded version doesn't
If you prefer a paper version, any edition of Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems or Elementary Differential Equations will do. A custom version is available through the bookstore. Older versions are cheaper. You don't need to buy the solutions manual. The WebAssign homework is different from the homework problems in the textbook, so the solutions manual will not be particularly useful.
