MAT 126:Calculus BStony Brook,Fall 2018About this course:This course picks up where MAT125 leaves off, and covers integral calculus: thedefinition of the integral, the fundamental theorem, symbolic and numeric methods of integration, areaunder a curve, volume, and applications such as arc length and work, as well as other topics such as calculusin polar coordinates.Prerequisites:In order to succeed in MAT126, youmusthave 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 orhigher 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 AMS151/161or MAT141/2). Use ofWebAssignis required. There are several options regarding the text; please see thepageabout the texton the class web page for details.Homework:Youcan notlearn calculus without working problems. Expect to spend at least 8 hours aweek solving problems; do all of the assigned problems, as well as additional ones to study. If you do notunderstand how to do something, get help from your TA, your lecturer, your classmates, or in the MathLearning Center. You are encouraged to study with and discuss problems with others from the class, butdo your own homework by yourself, and make sure youunderstandhow to do the problems.
