||Math 457 addresses the basic question "What happens when you apply
a function repeatedly?" This question arises naturally in differential
equations and analysis, but also touches upon diverse subjects such
as topology and number theory.
||Lectures will be involve not only standard presentation of
material, but use of applets and other computer demonstrations,
and occasional group work (which will count towards your grade).
We will often need you to look at
some material before lecture on your own, and will post what
you need to do in the Class Plans
|Assignments and exams:
|| Briefly, there will be formal homework due every week or two, and two
quizzes. There will also be preparation assignments which are less formal.
There will be a midterm exam in class on Friday May 4th (moved to Monday May 7th)
and a final exam at 10:15 on Thursday June 14th.
||The final exam cannot be rescheduled for any reason
except conflict with another exam. Late homeworks will not be accepted.
Cheating on an assignment or exam
will mean at least a sanction of getting no credit for that assignment or
exam and possibly failing the class and further sanctions by the
university. Any incompletes must be made up within one year.
