Christopher Staniszewski has prepared mini-lectures on topics related the course. Each lecture is between five and ten minutes long. Completing the Square

As this is an honors course, you will be asked to read some of the lecture material before class and there will be more emphasis on working through problems during class. In addition, the grade for classwork will be divided between quizzes and mini-projects. The class will be divided into groups of three or four students and each group will be asked to do one of the projects and make a presentation of fifteen to twenty minutes in class. A list of projects can be found here.

Before you register for your section, you must have a valid registration code. You then go to www.wileyplus.com and enter the code 468494 for our class in the `Register for a New Class' box. You will then be asked for your registration code.

Consider first coming to office hours. You can also visit the Academic Enhancement Center, either for a walk-in session or by making an appointment. The schedule for the AEC walk-in tutoring can be found here.

The AEC also offers Supplemental Instruction (SI) for this class which is held on Mondays from 5-6:3ppm in Washburn 220 and Tuessdays from 4-5:30pm in White Hall 206.

**Introductory Course Description**

This second course in calculus assumes that you know and can use the basic ideas covered in MTH 141. As in MTH 141, we will approach new ideas and problems from algebraic, graphical, and numerical points of view.

Spend about 8 hours per week, outside of class, working on problems, reading the text, and working on other projects. Sometime during the first week of class, set up your weekly schedule so that specific days and times are reserved for working out math problems.

**
Goals and Objectives**

The goals of the course are to have you develop symbol manipulation skills, mathematical modelling skills, skills in the use of technology to treat mathematical problems, an understanding of the language of calculus, and an appreciation for the uses of calculus in the sciences.

At the conclusion of this semester you should be able to:

- 1. Calculate integrals using a variety of algebraic and numerical techniques.
- 2. Solve problems in geometry, physics and probability using integrals.
- 3. Solve first order ordinary differential equations by graphical, numerical and algebraic techniques, and to set up mathematical models for problems in the sciences.
- 4. Calculate approximations to functions using the concepts of Taylor expansions.
- 5. Determine properties of convergence of numerical and power series.
- 6. Treat problems involving modeling, algebraic calculations and numerical calculations by using technology (Mathematica, graphing calculators).

**
Calculators**

Graphing calculators will not be used in this course and will not be permitted on exams.

Attendance, Quizzes, Homework
**

Policy on attendance, quizzes and homework will be announced in class. Also, check the FAQ (frequently asked questions) section of the course's web site, where you will find information about Incomplete Grade, Second Grade Option, etc.
