Second semester of the 3-semester calculus sequence 103/104/201.
Topics:
integration by substitution, integration by parts, partial fractions, trigonometric substitution, improper integrals, convergence tests for infinite series, alternating series, absolute convergence, power series, taylor series, complex numbers, first and second order differential equations, volume, length and surface area.
Classes: meet 3 times per week, for 50 minutes. Generally offered MWF at 9, 10, 11 and 12:30 in both Fall and Spring semesters. The course is organized into small precepts of 20 to 30 students. There is one course head who coordinates with all the instructors to write the exams. All students have the same homework assignments and take the same midterm and final exam. The midterm and final count for the bulk of your course grade, typically about 70%. These are graded by all the instructors together and one person grades the same question for all the students in the course. Typically there are small quizzes in precept, once a week or every other week. (Some semesters every section takes the same quizzes but in other semesters each preceptor writes his/her own quizzes.) Homework and quizzes typically count as about 30% of your grade.
