Course Description:† The main goals of this course will be to examine more advanced methods of computing integrals, to study sequences and series, and to calculate integrals using polar coordinates.† This represents Chapters 7, 10, and the first sections of 9 in the textbook Single Variable Calculus 6e, Early Transcendentals, 6th edition, Edwards and Penney; Published by Prentice Hall.
Grading:† Your final course grade will be 30% homework, two midterm exams at 20% each, and one final exam counting for the remaining 30%.† All assessment will be based on your ability to communicate a correct solution and explain your reasoning.† It is absolutely essential to write clearly; it is your responsibility to write in a way that tells the instructor that you understand the problem and its solution.
Homework:† Homework will be collected at the beginning of every class period.† Assignments will be announced in class and also via e-mail.† I encourage you to work with other students in the class when solving the homework problems, but you should write them up on your own.† Homework is not pledged.† To receive credit for homework, it must be handed in on time.† In case of a legitimate conflict that you know of before hand, you may see the instructor to make appropriate arrangements.† No late homework will be accepted.† Instead, your lowest homework score will be dropped.† Feel free to use a numeric solver (graphing calculator or Mathematica, etc.) to check your solutions, but be aware that such tools will not be available for your use on the exams.
Exams:† There will be two in-class, one-hour midterm exams, tentatively scheduled for Monday, June 19 and Friday, July 7.† Please do not miss an exam.† If you have a conflict with an in-class midterm exam, you should contact me before the exam to be allowed to take a make-up exam.† The two-hour final exam will take place on the last class meeting, Friday, July 21.† Note that there will be no make-up for the final exam.
Any student with a documented disability needing academic adjustments or
accommodations is requested to speak with me during the first two weeks of
class.† All discussions will remain
confidential.† Students with disabilities
