Material covered

Math 13 is a course designed for students who have taken Math 1210 Calculus course and want to continue on in the Math 1320 Engineering Calculus II course. This course covers the material Math 1210 students may have missed by not taking Math 1310 Engineering Calculus I. In particular, the concepts covered include: inverse, transcendental, and parametric functions; the integration techniques of integration by parts and partial fractions; l'Hopital's rule, linear approximations and some trigonometric integrals. This is a lot of material for a one week course, so expect the pacing to be rather quick.

Grading is done on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis. Students will be evaluated on in class work and an exam at the end of the week.

Attendance

Since students are evaluated on in class work, attendance is required for the course.

Homework

In addition to in class worksheets, homework will be assigned nightly.

Tutoring Center

The math department offers free drop-in tutoring for math department classes at the 1000 and 2000 level, as well as the following 3000 level classes: 3070-3080, 3150, 3160. The tutoring center is located in room 155 of the T. Benny Rushing Mathematics Center (adjacent to the LCB and JWB).

Students with Disabilities

The American with Disabilities Act requires that reasonable accommodations be provided for students with physical, sensory, cognitive, systemic, learning, and psychiatric disabilities. Any student with a certified disability who needs to arrange reasonable accommodations must contact University Disability Services (UDS) and me at the beginning of the semester to discuss any such accommodations for the course.
