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:
Concepts and techniques will be presented and exercised with the students in order to develop capabilities to solve Calculus problems in the areas covered in the course.

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.)

  Instructor Learning Outcomes
  1. 1.  Compute derivatives using basic differentiation rules.
  2. 2.  Compute derivatives using implicite differentiation.
  3. 3.  Determine relative and absolute extrema.
Core Assessment:

  • Periodic assignments
  • Quizzes
  • Tests

Class Assessment:
Three examinations of equal weight consisting of representative problems associated with the topics presented.


The final grade in the course will be determined as follows:
    Exam I........30%         A............90% or above
    Exam II.......30%         B............80 to 89.99%
    Exam III......30%        C............70 to 79.99%
    Homework..10%        D............60 to 69.99%
         Total...100%          F............Below 60% or 3 unexcused absences
An Incomplete will not be allowed unless the student has met with the instructor and discussed the difficulties encountered.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Only accepted with prior approval of instructor.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
     1. It is expected that all students will participate in the class by asking questions and by presenting problems as assigned.

    2. Three (3) unexcused absences will result in a grade of F.  All students are encouraged to consult with the instructor if he/she is expecting to be absent for legitimate reasons.

    3. A student turning anybody else's work as his/her own will not be tolerated.  If determined by the instructor that academic dishonesty has occurred in any part of the course, the student involved will normally be given an immediate grade of F and dropped from the course.  The Dean of Academic Affairs will be notified in writing of the action taken.  The added recommendation will be made to the Dean that the student involved be dropped from the college.

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 ( or Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92

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.
