Course Description:
This course has four parts. The first part begins with a review of the Riemann
Integral and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus followed by a study of techniques of integration:
the
calculation of anti-derivatives, use of tables, computers, and numerical approximations.
The second part
of the course is devoted to applications of the integral: areas, volumes, arc length, work, and center of mass.
The third part covers, infinite series, power series, and Taylor series with applications. The course ends
with parametric equations, polar coordinates, and conic sections.
Along the way, you will be introduced to
the computer program
Mathematica
(available in our computer lab located in TH 404) which will be
required for many of the homework problems
.
The course will cover material from the following sections
of the text:
4.5-4.7, 5.1, 5.2, 5.4, 5.5-5.7, 6.1-6.3, 6.4, 6.6*, 7.1-7.10, 8.1-8.3, 8.4*, 8.5* (material in starred
sections will be covered as time permits).
To succeed in this course, count on attending all lectures and discussion sections.
The average student will
need to devote at least eight hours per week of study time outside of class.
Grades will be based on
homework, weekly quizzes, two 50 minute midterms, and a final examination according to the following
