Some code for today’s lecture
u[t_, x_] := Sum[(8/((2 k + 1)^2 Pi^2)) Cos[(2 k + 1)*.5*Pi*x]* Cos[(2 k + 1)*.5*Pi*t], {k, 0, 5}] u0[t_, x_] := (8/((2*0 + 1)^2 Pi^2)) Cos[(2*0 + 1)*.5*Pi*x]* Cos[(2*0 + 1)*.5*Pi*t] u1[t_, x_] := (8/((2*1 + 1)^2 Pi^2)) Cos[(2*1 + 1)*.5*Pi*x]* Cos[(2*1 + 1)*.5*Pi*t] u2[t_, x_] := (8/((2*2 + 1)^2 Pi^2)) Cos[(2*2 + 1)*.5*Pi*x]* Cos[(2*2 + 1)*.5*Pi*t] u3[t_, x_] := (8/((2*3 + 1)^2 Pi^2)) Cos[(2*3 + 1)*.5*Pi*x]* Cos[(2*3 + 1)*.5*Pi*t] Manipulate[ Plot[{u[t, x], u0[t, x], u1[t, x]}, {x, 1, 1}, PlotRange > 1], {t, 0, 12}] 
13 March  Corrections to Exam 1 are due before Spring Break: You are to redo Problem 1(C), explaining our eigenprocedure for the wave equation. If you opted not to do Problem 2(B), then you should do that problem at some point as well; you don’t need to submit Problem 2. 
13 March  Exercise 3.2.4, along with the rest of section 3.2, should also be completed before Spring Break. 
13 March  Here are the exercises for Section 3.3 and Section 3.4. These are due the week after Spring Break. But you should start them now!
