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.  Pre-requisite:  MA210 or equivalent.  3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:
Two graded examinations will be provided.  The final will be comprehensive and both tests will cover assigned reading, homework and quizzes.    Reviews will be conducted to assure that the student fully grasps areas which will be tested. The examinations will cover basically 84% of your grade while classroom participation will cover the other 16%.

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:
The course will be assessed in accordance with the course objectives listed earlier.  This includes participation and the mid term and final examination.  Students who prepare for classes by doing the assigned homework and (no grade) quizzes, should do well in course assessment.


The final course grade will be determined using the following points percentages:
Unit/Week Participation Mid Term Final Total
1 5 5
2 5 5
3 5 5
4 5 5
5 5 100 105
6 5 5
7 5 5
8 5 100 105
Points 40 100 100 240
Percent 0.17 0.42 0.42 1.00

Late Submission of Course Materials:
All Exams will be completed by the end of the class.  If the final exam is not completed an F will be administered.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Students are responsible for reading all assignments from the text.  Assignments (problems from the text) will also be given throughout the term.  Students are required to obtain information regarding assignments made during absences.

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 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87

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 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87

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, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. 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".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
