Math 20580 students may attend any of these instructor or TA office hours, not only those of their instructor or TA.

Here are lists of homework problems for this semester:

(1) Homework problems for linear algebra.

This first part of homework is selected from the textbook:

Lay, Lay and McDonald "Linear algebra and its applications", 5th edition.

(2) Homework problems for differential equations.

This second part of homework is selected from the textbook:

Boyce and DiPrima, "Elementary differential equations and boundary value problems", 11th edition.

If you are using the 10th edition of the book then the problems are 10th edition problems.

Your instructor may assign additional problems in lectures. Beware that if you have a different edition of the text, you should copy the homework problems from someone with the correct edition listed above because problems differ between the various editions.
