Concepts and Contexts
Course Description: I shall cover chapters
5, 6, 7, and 8, as well as Appendixes B, H, and I (a departmental handout
on complex numbers). The main content of the course is devoted to techniques
of integration, applications of integration, introduction to differential
equations, infinite sequences and series, polar coordinates, complex numbers,
and conic sections. The objective of the course is to master these
topics and concepts, as well as improve problem solving skills and critical
will be five tests(100 pts each), ten quizzes and four projects (10 pts
each), and a comprehensive final. The 10 best grades from the quizzes and
projects will form a quiz grade, which (if higher) will substitute the
lowest testgrade. The average forms the semester grade. There will be a
comprehensive Final Exam (100 pts). The grade for the course is based on
75% of the semester grade and 25% of the Final exam according to the scale:
A 90 -100; B 80-89; C 70-79; D 60-69;
F below 59.
No make up tests or quizzes will be
given (unless proper excuse is provided).
Homework will be assigned, but not graded. However, students are
expected to do their homework on time. It is the instructor's experience
that keeping up with the homework is an essential part of
the preparation for the course. The problems on the tests and the quizzes
will be similar to the homework.
