**Prerequisite:** C in MATH 1351.

**Text:** *CALCULUS,* 5th Edition by Strauss, Bradley, and Smith; published by Pearson.

**Course Description:** Integrals: methods of integration and applications; solving differential equations; infinite sequences and series; introduction to vector analysis.

**Course Outline:**

- Chapter 6 – Additional Applications of the Integrals
- Chapter 7 – Methods of Integrations
- Chapter 8 – Infinite Series
- Chapter 9 – Vectors in the Planes and in Space

**Expected Learning Outcomes:** Students will become proficient in techniques of integration and the use of integration to solve real world problems. They also understand the basic properties of convergent series and sequences. In particular the students will:

- Compute areas and volumes
- Solve real world problems involving selected concepts from the physical and life sciences, and economics
- Integrate by using substitution, integration by parts, and partial fractions
- Analyze the convergence of infinite series and sequences
- Perform basic vector algebra

**Methods of Assessment of Learning Outcomes:** Assessment of
the learning outcomes will be achieved through homework assignments, quizzes,
three midterm exams, and a final exam. Attendances also count.

**Grading policy:** Homework will be assigned and quizzes will be given weekly. Both will count for 25% of the grade. Each lowest score of homework and quizzes will be
dropped. There will be three midterm exams in class, each will count
for 15% of the grade. The final exam will count for 30% of the grade.
All in-class exams are closed-book. No make-up exams are given unless
legitimate documents for excuses are presented to the instructor at
least a week in advance.

Grading Scale: A: 90%-100%, B: 80%-89%,
C: 70%-79%, D: 60%-69%, F: below 60%

**Quizzes:** Quizzes are given weekly in the discussion sessions.

**Homework assignments:** Online homework will be assigned
though Webwork. Students will receive the instructor's message for
login information. Due dates are indicated on each assignment.
Students should spend very first week to become familiar with the
system.

**Calculators:** No calculators are allowed in the exams and quizzes. However students can use them in their studies, particularly the scientific calculators.

**Attendance Policy:** Students must go to lectures and discussion sessions. Attendance will be taken. If you miss no more than four lectures, a bonus of three points will be added to your final grade.

**Examination Schedule:**

Midterm 1: Thursday, Feb. 11.

Midterm 2: Thursday, Mar. 11.

Midterm 3: Thursday, Apr. 15.

FINAL EXAM: Monday, May 10, 10:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m. Room will be assigned.

**Critical Dates:**

- Jan. 13: Classes begin.
- Jan. 18: Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Holiday.
- Jan. 29: Last day to drop a course and receive a refund.
- Mar. 13-21: Spring Break.
- Mar. 24: Last day for student-initiated drop on MyTech with penalty.
- Apr. 5: No classes.
- Apr. 28- May 5: No exams.
- May 4: Last day of classes.

**Academic
Misconduct:** Academic dishonesty is intolerable and will be
punished to the full extent allowed by the University policy.

**Civility in the Classroom:** Students are expected to assist
in maintaining a classroom environment that is conducive to learning.
In order to assure that all students have the opportunity to gain
from time spent in class, unless otherwise approved by the
instructor, students are prohibited from engaging in any other form
of distraction. Inappropriate behavior in the classroom shall result,
minimally, in a request to leave class.

**Students with Disabilities:** Any student who because of a
disability may require special arrangements in order to meet course
requirements should contact the instructor as soon as possible.

**Advice:** Come to class regularly, work on homework problems.
Ask questions in class and get help from the instructor during the
office hours. Master the material quickly and *do not* wait too
late until the midterms or the final exam. Students are encouraged to
give feedbacks to the instructor during the semester using the form
posted online.

*NOTE:* When needed, the instructor will communicate with the
students using their TTU email addresses. At the beginning of the
semester, the instructor will send out a message to confirm the students' email addresses and to inform
about Webwork. If a student does not receive any messages by the
time of the second class, he/she must contact the
instructor immediately.
