Book: James Steward -- Calculus: Concepts and Contexts, 2nd
Course Description: I shall cover chapters 5, 6, and 8, part
of 7, as well as Appendixes H, and I (a departmental handout on complex
numbers). The main content of the course is devoted to techniques of
integration, applications of integration, 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 thinking.
Grading: There will be four tests (100 pts each), nine quizzes and four
projects (10 pts each), and a comprehensive final. Weakly homework will be
collected. The semester grade will be formed from the 10 best quizzes and projects
- 15%, homework - 10%, three best tests - 25% each. The grade for the course is
based on 75% of the semester grade and 25% of the Final exam according to the
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: Homework will be collected and graded
weakly. 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.
