Ordinary Differential Equations and Linear Algebra

Ordinary Differential Equations and Linear Algebra

I will have office hours Tuesday 4-6pm and Thursday 4-6pm.
Currently I have two precisely students writing the exam 2-5pm on Friday because of scheduling conflicts. If you have a conflict and haven't talked to me yet please do so ASAP.
