Mathematics 112 Spring, 2011 Textbook : Stewart, James; Single Variable Calculus , 6th ed., for reference Instructor : Dr. Evelyn C. Bailey, Office in Pierce 122 Office Hours : Will be posted weekly on the class conference. Email: ebailey@emory.edu or type Evelyn Bailey on Learn Link Conference : On the learnlink class conference, Math 112 spring 2011, announcements, daily notes, scheduled SI sessions, questions related to problems, information can be posted at any time. Each student should place this conference on his/her desktop and check daily. Students are responsible for information posted on this conference. Content : Mathematics 112 is the second semester of calculus and is designed specifically for students who have completed a semester of college calculus (Math 111, Math 110B, AP Calculus scores of 4 or 5). Course content includes methods of integration, improper integrals, polar coordinates, sequences and infinite series, power series, and introduction to differential equations. Specific topics by class day are attached. Goals : (1) Students should have a basic understanding of derivative, of anti-derivative, and of limit. (2) Students should be able to use the rules of differentiation as they apply to algebraic and transcendental functions. (3) Students should be able to evaluate a variety of limits. (4) Students should be able to sketch graphs of transcendental functions by building on concepts from Calculus I. (5) Students should be able to demonstrate appropriately the methods of integration (substitution, parts, trigonometric substitution, partial fractions) and use these methods with typical indefinite, definite, and improper integrals. (6) Students should be able to graph and to find area using simple polar coordinate expressions. (7) Students should be able to determine convergence of appropriate infinite series by giving logical arguments. (8) Students should have a basic understanding of power series and be able to determine the domain of appropriate power series. (9) Students should be able to derive a power series expression for specified transcendental expressions using a geometric series or Taylor's Theorem. (10) Students should be able to solve simple first-order differential equations (separable, exact, linear). Major Tests/Final Exam : Four major tests will be given in Seney 208, 209 and 215, at 2:15 - 4:00 p.m. on the following Friday afternoons: February 4, February 18, March 25, and April 15. The final exam will be comprehensive and will be given according to the final exam schedule. Each student is expected to take tests at the scheduled times. Any conflicts or problems will be handled on an individual basis. If your instructor considers the excuse legitimate, arrangements will be made to take a test on the afternoon prior to the testing time. No make up tests are given after the test date and time . Emergencies will be handled on an
