Note: If you have a previous edition of the textbook, you do not need to buy the new edition. However, you should collaborate with a classmate with the 5 th edition to mark similar homework problems so you can practice properly for each section. Calculator: You need at least a scientific calculator for this course (recommended brand is Texas Instruments). Graphing calculators are optional and may not be used on certain exams. Recommended model is TI-83 or TI-84. The TI-89 will not be permitted in this course . If you do not have a graphing calculator, you may use free online graphing calculators to complete your homework (see course website for links). No graphing calculator will be required for any exam or quiz. A Note About Office Hours I highly encourage you to come to office hours for help. However, you must come prepared with your work done and specific questions. If you come to office hours because you did not attend class, do your work or read the section, I will ask you to do so before I will help. I am not here to do your work for you. VALUABLE RESOURCES: BC Math Lab: There is drop-in tutoring available for free. The Math Lab is located on the second floor of the library (building 17). You do not need an appointment. Their phone number is: (954) 201-6645. Please ask for the Calculus tutoring list for the semester. Not all tutors are going to be qualified to help you with this higher level material. The LRC lab has more Calculus tutors than the Math Lab, so try them first. They are in Buiding 17 – Room 234. Smarthinking Live Tutoring: As a BC student, you have access to live chat with a math tutor, which can really help if you get stuck. For directions, see the course website, and go to the Calculus I page, then to Course Resources. Course Website: The course website will allow you to view and print handouts you may have missed or lost, test review sheets, solutions to handouts, assignments and tests, links to helpful websites including Smarthinking and access to your grades. COURSE DESCRIPTION: This is the second of a three course sequence in calculus. Topics include techniques of integration, conics and polar coordinates, indeterminate forms, L'Hopital's Rule, proper integrals, infinite series, parametric equations, improper integrals and vectors; volume, arc length, surface area, and other applications of integration.
