I am away (at mathematical conferences) from October 1 to October 10. The midterm will still take place and the lectures will be covered by Uriya First. There are no office hours during this period, but I will answer all your questions by email.
There are two midterms on October 1 and on November 5, and the final exam will take place between November 29 and December 17.
Time and location for midterm 1: Usual class time/room, that is Wednesday October 1, LSK201, 8:00-8:50 am.
Content for midterm 1, October 1: In terms of the course outline, the midterm covers all of Part 1 on first order ODEs, and Part 2 up to and including constant-coefficient second-order linear ODEs in the case of real roots. This corresponds to lectures 1-10, and to section 0.0 to just before 2.2.1 in Lebl's book, together with Braun's notes on exact equations.
Recommended preparation for midterm 1: understanding the theory from the lecture notes and textbooks, doing/redoing exercises from homeworks 1--3 and the course textbooks, attempting the practice exams from 2009 and 2010 (note: these sometimes covered more topics than this year).
