MAT 126: Calculus B Stony Brook, Fall 2018 About this course: This course picks up where MAT125 leaves off, and covers integral calculus: the definition of the integral, the fundamental theorem, symbolic and numeric methods of integration, area under a curve, volume, and applications such as arc length and work, as well as other topics such as calculus in polar coordinates. Prerequisites: In order to succeed in MAT126, you must have a solid mastery of derivatives. Specifically, you need a C or higher in MAT125 (or MAT131 or AMS151 or equivalent transfer credit), a level 6 or higher on the math placement exam, or a score of 4 or higher on the AB-Calculus AP exam. Text: Single Variable Calculus (Stony Brook Edition 4) , by James Stewart. This text is used throughout the MAT125/126/127 sequence as well as MAT131/132 (but not AMS151/161 or MAT141/2). Use of WebAssign is required. There are several options regarding the text; please see the page about the text on the class web page for details. Homework: You can not learn calculus without working problems. Expect to spend at least 8 hours a week solving problems; do all of the assigned problems, as well as additional ones to study. If you do not understand how to do something, get help from your TA, your lecturer, your classmates, or in the Math Learning Center. You are encouraged to study with and discuss problems with others from the class, but do your own homework by yourself, and make sure you understand how to do the problems.
