Course description: 4 credits. Math 1311 and 1321
together are equivalent to the three semester sequence Math 1210, Math
1220, and Math 2210. This sequence is intended for engineering majors.
Review of introductory calculus, applications of differential and
integral calculus, introduction to differential equations, conic
sections and polar coordinates, numerical approximation, sequences and
series.
Labs: Each student will be
enrolled in one of two Thursday lab sections. Labs will provide
opportunities for reviews, help on homework, group work, presentations,
and projects. A quiz will be given in the lab each week.
Cumulative scores from the lab will count toward your final grade.
Homework: Problems will be assigned weekly, and listed
below. A random subset of problems from each assignment will be
graded. Late homework cannot be accepted. Students may consult
one another and discuss homework problems, however the assignments you
turn in must represent your own work.
Time and effort spent on homework is invariably reflected in exam
scores.
