Textbook

The textbook for the course is Stewart's Single
Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals (6th Edition) or Stewart's Calculus:
Early Transcendentals (6th Edition); from what I can tell, chapters 1-11
of these books are identical and the only difference between the two
books is that the latter costs $30 more and has an extra six chapters
on multivariable calculus that we won't use for this course (and as
far as I know, MATH 212 has never used Stewart). Homeworks
will be mostly problems from the textbook and the first homework is due
Friday, September 4, so make sure you have access to a book in time to
do the first homework.

Course Description

This course is the continuation of MATH 101. The topics include
integration by parts, partial fractions, and other methods of
integration, infinite
sequences and series, Taylor polynomials, tests for
convergence, power series, polar coordinates, and parametric
curves. See the following detailed (but tentative) schedule for what I plan to cover each day.

Grades

Your grade in the class will be based on the following weights:

Homework

Homeworks
will be put up on OWL-Space
and are due on Fridays by 3pm (or on Wednesday by 3pm in the two weeks
with midterm exams on Friday). You must turn in your assignment to the
Math 102
Section 1 inbox on the 2nd floor of Herman
Brown (next to HB220).
Late
homework will not be accepted. However, your lowest homework grade
will be dropped before computing your homework average.

Homework solutions should be legible, and each problem should be
worked
out in detail with the final answer clearly indicated. If you choose
to type up your homework solutions on a computer, I would strongly
suggest learning to use L^{a}T_{e}χ.
You may use a
calculator or computer algebra program to assist you on the
homework, but you must still write up complete solutions showing all
the steps, and you should remember that you will not be able to use
calculators at all on the exams.

Please staple
your homework and write your name and the assignment on the front
page. You are welcome to work together with other students on your
homeworks, but your write-up must be your own, and you should write on
your homework the names
of any other students you worked with.

Exams

There will be two in-class midterm exams and one comprehensive final
exam. All exams are closed-book and closed notes and are subject to the
Rice University Honor Code. You will not be allowed to use a
calculator on the exams.

The
final exam is scheduled for 7:00-10:00pm on December 9, the first day
of exam period.

Disability Support

this class, please contact me to discuss your needs. Additionally, you
