Course Description:
The study of the calculus continues with the definite integral and its applications, transcendental functions, integration techniques, the conic sections, polar coordinates, parametric equations, indeterminate forms and improper integrals. 3:0:3 Prerequisite: MA210 or equivalent.

Educational Philosophy:
 

The instructor's philosophy is based on constructivist view of mathematics learning. Students construct their own schema. Instructor provides guidance like lectures, HW assignment and tutoring but learning task is placed entirely on student's shoulders. Full use of technology is one of the ways instructor guides students

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Compute simple integrals by guessing the antiderivative
  2. Compute the area under a given curve using Riemann sums
  3. Compute integrals using the power rule, the sum and difference rules, and simple substitution.
  4. State and utilize the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to compute definite integrals.
  5. Differentiate and integrate inverse functions
  6. Application of integrals (areas, volumes of revolution, work, etc.)


Core Assessment:

  • Periodic assignments
  • Quizzes
  • Tests

Class Assessment:
1 midterm, 1 comprehensible final, Quizzes and Homework.  Midterm, final, quizzes and HW consist of questions and mostly problems at the level of and based in textbook

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.   Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  3. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  4. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  5. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  6. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  7. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
