Welcome to the class
« on: September 03, 2014, 06:35:51 AM »
Welcome to this course forum.

It runs in conjunction with this course website. More permanent and systematic information is placed on website, while forum is for discussion. Please read before registering!

You can select any username (login) you want (take a rather short one). Username is what only you (and Admins) can see.
 
However  change your (screen) Name  (the one which everybody sees) to one easily identifiable (Admins should be able to identify you with a student enrolled to this course--and matching BlackBoard name; otherwise your posting privileges could be reduced or revoked):  Open Profile > Account Settings and look for "Name".

It would be preferable to use your University of Toronto email address.

BTW you can have a cool avatar too. Please do not display any confidential info.

You cannot change the loginname (used for login).  But there is no need.  Nobody except you knows your password - even Admins - but Admins don't need  to know it.

Some forum rules
  • Please use different boards according to their description (I will create new ones if needed)
  • Do not hijack topics: if the topic is devoted to some question, do not post anything which is not related. Start a new topic.
  • On the other hand, do not start new topic answering to the existing post; use the same topic.
  • Do not put in the same post several not related things - make several posts instead (in different topics).
  • Do not post solution which coincides with the solution already posted by someone else;
  • Read and search before postings;
  • Use common sense.

Karma
Useful posts are rewarded by Karma which later translates to Bonus points (in the final mark).

Have questions?
If you have a question which you think is of general interest—ask it here rather than via email.

MathJax
This forum (and website) use MathJax to display mathematics. However hooking MathJax broke preview in many browsers (but not in Safari, Chrome or other WebKit based browsers). Still, you can always modify your post.

Blackboard
Blackboard https://portal.utoronto.ca/, Winter-2014-MAT244H1-F-LEC5101.LEC5102.LEC0101: Ordinary Diff Equat/Ordinary Diff Equat, will be used only for marks, occasionally for copies of  the important announcements and emails.

*Some* of those who had registered on forum have not read what was said above about names. I repeat: if your BlackBoard name is John Smith, then use it on forum. Not John_Smith, John, JSmith etc, not your email address, leave alone koolguy, MMM and etc.

Fix them (you cannot change login, but can change the Name). A bit late I will go through new members and some measures will be taken.
