- MTH 261: syllabus and course plan.  (For office hours, see syllabus.)

IMPORTANT 1: All answers on home works and exams must be justified,  even if  that is not evident from
                             the phrasing of the question. Answers without justification will receive partial credit at best.
IMPORTANT 2: Before turning in exams or HW's, write your first plus last name in the top right corner
                              of each sheet you turn in (even if you staple them together)!

General Announcement for Students:

In most of my classes you will be either strongly encouraged,
or even obliged to turn in your HW in *.pdf format based on LATEX.
Here is a website where LATEX is explained:

Student Research Projects:

I have many research projects, Most are intended for 501 theses or PhD level projects.
If you are interested in doing a research project in:
Dynamical Systems, Fractal Geometry, Coherent Motion of Flocks, Topology/Geometry,
Discrete Mathematics, and Mathematical Physics, or others, please talk to me.
