Text:  Thomas' Calculus, Eleventh Edition, Finney, Weir, and Giordano

Credit:  4 Hours

Prerequisites:  Math 184 or equivalent

Goals and Objectives:  To make full use of the student's previous mathematical experiences, to provide an adequate foundation for the student's success in Calculus III, and to enable the student to acquire the understanding necessary for applying the course experiences in subsequent situations.

Course Description:  The topics of this course are applications of definite integrals, the calculus of transcendental functions, infinite series, and integration techniques. Some topics are integrated with computer activities.

Course Requirements:  Each student should :
1. prepare for each lecture by reading the appropriate topic(s).
2. devote a minimum of 10 hours per week for preparation.
3. attend all lectures and keep a notebook of lecture notes and solved problems.
4. complete and turn in all assignments (if required) on time.
