Overview of Course:
This is the second semester of a twosemester sequence covering
the basic concepts, methods, and applications of differential and integral calculus for
functions of one variable, along with additional material on polar curves, infinite
sequences and series, and vectors and threedimensional geometry.
The focus in this
course is mostly on techniques and applications, with only some consideration of
mathematical theory.
It is
important
for students here to be comfortable with the use of
algebraic and trigonometric methods and the topics in Math 1271; the sequence pre
requisites are either Math 1031 or Math 1051
and
Math 1151.
A list of the topics with
which students are expected to be familiar is given below.
This is a fourcredit course with 3 lectures and 2 recitations each week.
You should
expect to spend 8 to 10 hours per week outside of class for your own preparation.
Regular practice of assigned problems will increase your likelihood of success, as is true
for any skill.
The material in this course is covered at a steady pace, so it will be
important not to fall behind.
Course News:
The Webpage established for this course on Moodle is given above.
