Textbook:
R. Larson, R. Hostetler, and B. Edwars, Calculus with Analytic Geometry, seventh edition.  Boston, Houghton Mifflin Company, 2002

Textbooks can be purchased though the MBS bookstore

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:
Active participation is encouraged.  Class time will be spent in instructor presentations, class discussion, independent working of problems and some group work.  Students are urged to be actively thinking; they should be continuously considering how to solve the problem being discussed.  Written homework assignments and regular testing will help develop skills.

Learning Outcomes:
On finishing this course students will be able to
  1.  Develop and use properties of the natural    
logarithmic function including those involved in differentiation and integration.

  2.  Differentiate inverse trigonometric functions.

  3.  Differentiate and integrate hyperbolic functions.

  4.  Find areas and volumes using the methods of the calculus.

  5.  Perform integration by parts.

  6.  Apply l"Hopital's Rule

  7.  Find the limit of a sequence.

  8.  Use properties of geometric series.

  9.  Determine convergence or divergence of a series.

 10.  Find polynomal approximations of elementary functions.

 11.  Analyze and write equations of parabolas, ellipses, and hyperbolas.

 12.  Understand and use the polar coordinate system.

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of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".
  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.
