Proficiency in the material from Calculus I (Chapters 0-5 of the text) is expected.


The course will cover Chapters 6-10 of the text. This material includes techniques of integration, geometric applications of the integral, numerical approximation, improper integrals, logarithmic and exponential functions, differential equations, infinite series, and conic sections.


Assignments will be posted on the assignment page at least one week in advance. Students are responsible for monitoring the webpage for these assignments, they may not be mentioned in class. Homework should be submitted prior to the start of class on the due date. No assignments will be accepted after class begins. You are encouraged to discuss the homework problems with each other, but everyone must submit their own solutions.


Each week there will be a short in-class quiz, exam weeks excepted. No makeup quizzes will be given.
