This section includes recent syllabi, the SBG course standards and grading rubric from the most recent semester, and advice for DE students from former DE students.
I've been teaching this course since 2007, so the material is like a familiar friend. My lesson notes are still heavily dependent on the first DE text I ever taught out of though, so I am rewriting them in my own voice, after 13 years of teaching the course out of three texts. I will post notes when they are available.
I began creating this playlist in summer 2020, and hope to finish it during the Fall 2020 semester. Videos are being added to keep up with the pace of my Fall 2020 course.
Thank you for your patience. To see the entire playlist, hover over the three stacked horizontal lines in the top right-hand corner of the video window.
These are worked examples with full-solutions of first order ODEs and IVPs featuring first order ODEs. An outline of the steps is often listed in the right side of the PDF. That way, if you forget the method, the right side bar provides an outline of the method for you.
This section includes fully worked solutions to higher order ordinary differential equations and IVPs.
There is wide variety of exercises and problems that can be solved using the Laplace transformation and the inverse Laplace transformation. The full solutions of the example problems from class are linked here.
In my face-to-face DE course, I use standards based grading, a mastery-based assessment and teaching system. One of the characteristics of SBG is that students are assessed over approximately 30 individual standards in 6-10 quizzes per semester rather than unit exams. My online DE course covers exactly the same content, but is assessed in unit exams rather than quizzes.
I provide my students will quiz keys from recent semesters to help my students see what A work looks like, and to get familiar with the format of the quizzes. The quizzes change a bit from semester to semester, but the format stays about the same. The quizzes from the Fall 2019 semester are linked below, and provide an additional example for each method we cover in our course.
