Textbook:
Thomas’ Calculus:
Early Transcendentals (11th edition); media upgrade
optional
Expectations:
Between lectures, you are expected to review your notes, go through the
appropriate section(s) in the book, understand all relevant examples in the book, and at
tempt all homework problems assigned for the section. I anticipate that a student passing
this course with a ’C’ will spend at least 12 focused hours each week on Math 2425 outside
the classroom.
You are expected to come on time for Problem Solving activities.
Points
will be deducted if you are more than 10 minutes late to a problem solving activity.
Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of Math 2425, the student should be able to
1. compute the area between two curves, in both rectangular and polar coordinates;
compute volumes and surface areas of solids of revolution, in both rectangular and
polar coordinates; compute arc length of both polar and rectangular curves
2. compute the value of integrals by the methods of integration by parts, trigonometric
substitutions and partial fractions
3. compute the value of improper integrals
4. compute limits of sequences and series
5. determine the radius of convergence of power series; differentiate and integrate power
series
6. represent a known function as a Taylor series; approximate a known function with
a Taylor polynomial and determine the error involved
7. compute the standard representation of a vector in 3space, compute the dot product
and cross product of vectors
8. write equations of lines, planes, and quadric surfaces in 3space
9. justify and explain steps in problem solving. In particular, students should be able
to construct correct and detailed mathematical arguments to justify their claimed
solutions to problems.
