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
