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 educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on
lectures, activities, quizzes, assignments, and examination.
The instructor encourage exploration of the material and questioning to
deeper the student's understanding and empower them to take responsibilities
for their success in the course.

  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:

- Homework/ assignments
