Course Description:
MA211 Calculus and Analytic Geometry II: 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:
 I provide each student the maximum number of resources to learn the material. This enables the student to use a combination of the various mediums to match his/her personal learning style. These resources include me as the instructor, the text, lectures, my personal notes, various internet links, as well as homework assignments and tests to help guide and evaluate the student’s efforts. Homework will be assigned and due each week to give the student an opportunity to practice applying the material. To facilitate the student’s understanding of the material, I will provide an opportunity to ask questions and review material during each class.  Students are encouraged to bring homework questions to these sessions. I will also make myself as available as possible via email and by appointment. A midterm and final exam will be administered to test the student’s ability to apply the material.

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:
Final grade will be based upon performance on homework assignments and two exams (a midterm and final).

Grading:

6 Homeworks (80pts ea.) 480pts 48%
Midterm Exam 160pts 16%
Final Exam 160pts 16%
4 Quizzes (each 50points) 200pts 20%

Late Submission of Course Materials:

I will not accept late submission of any course material unless previous approved by instructor. 
Homework Assignments are due during class when collected unless otherwise stated.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

Students must always conduct themselves in a manner that fosters learning.  This includes but is not limited to being respectful to the instructors and other students.  If you have difficulties with another student, please kindly address that student or bring the problem to my attention after class.  I encourage the students to use each other as a resouce for learning the material.  Students may work on homework assignments together, but I expect that each student will do his/her own work!

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 students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92

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. from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92-93

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.
