**
Description of course: **

This is the second quarter of a series
on calculus
and analytic geometry. This course continues
the study (from Math 20A) of differential
and integral calculus for functions
of one variable.

After a brief review of the notions of derivative and
antiderivative, including
l'Hopital's rule, the mean value theorem and the
Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, we will turn to methods of integration.
Analytic methods for finding antiderivatives, especially the methods of
substitution, integration by parts and partial fractions, will
be studied and applied.
Numerical methods for approximating integrals that
cannot be evaluated exactly will also be discussed.
These methods (both analytic and numerical) will be used
to solve first order separable differential equations
which arise in physical and biological applications.
As an introduction to functions taking values in
higher dimensions, we will study curves in the plane and
related
conic sections.
The course will conclude with a discussion of
complex numbers as a precursor to the treatment of
vectors in Math 21C.

Throughout the course, concepts will
be treated
graphically, algebraically and numerically.
In addition, examples
and exercises from real world applications
will be used to illustrate concepts introduced in
class.

** Text: ** Calculus -- Early Transcendentals, ** Fourth
Edition, ** by James Stewart, Brooks/Cole Publishing Company.

** Calculator: ** The preferred graphing calculator for this
class is the TI-85 or TI-86. (If you are buying a new calculator,
the TI-86 is recommended.)
Calculators will be used to assist with visualization
and also for numerical approximation. Some programs
for the TI-85/86 will be provided to students during
the course.
The text of programs for the TI-85/86 and some other calculators
(e.g., TI-81, TI-82, TI-83, HP-48, Casio) is available
from a website at the University of Arizona by clicking here.

** Calculus Lab: ** A calculus lab will be open
for students to obtain assistance with graphing calculators,
conceptual questions
and homework problems.
This will be in AP&M 2402. The lab will be open Monday through
Friday from noon till approximately 8 p.m.
(Please check the schedule outside AP&M 2402 for the exact
hours of operation.)

** Reading: **
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT STUDENTS READ THE ASSIGNED
MATERIAL IN ADVANCE OF THE LECTURE.
This will be expected and it will enable students
to maximize what they get out of lectures.

** Homework: **
* Homework is
an essential part of the course. *
A very important function of homework is that
it helps you to internalize concepts and develop problem solving
skills.
Homework will be assigned in class.
For a list of homework assigned so far, click here.
Although homework will not be graded, it is very important that you
make sure you solve all of the homework problems. If you need
assistance, this is available from the TA,
calculus lab, Professor, and other places such as Oasis. However,
before seeking assistance with a problem, it is a good idea
to earnestly try to work on the problem, understanding what it is
asking, what concepts are related to it, and making what progress you can
on solving the problem. This will lead to a more productive session
when you go to seek assistance and is part of the process
of developing problem solving skills.

** Quizzes: **
There will be quizzes held in the fourth hour.
These will test material covered in class, in the text
and on the homework assignments.
The quizzes will count for 30% of your course grade.
For more information concerning the quizzes, click here.

** Exams: ** There will be one midterm
and one final exam. The midterm will count
for 20% of your grade and the final exam for 50% of your grade.
Also, to pass the course,
a student must pass the final exam.
The final exam for all sections will be held
Thursday, December 16, 3-6 p.m.
For more information concerning the final exam, click here.

* No make up quizzes or exams will be given. *

** COURSE GRADES: **

Enrolled students may find out their final course grades by logging onto
studentlink.
By law, grade information
cannot be given out by email or phone or posted publicly. Students wishing to
obtain more information about their grade should see their TA or Professor
Williams in person in office hours during the first week of Winter quarter.
