This is the second in a three-semester course-sequence (Math 109-110-211) covering standard topics
in introductory calculus for college undergraduates. It assumes that a student is familiar with rules for
computing derivatives of algebraic, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions, and has used
these in solving problems involving optimization, curve-sketching, and computing rates-of-change. It
also assumes that a student has been introduced to the concepts of definite integral and anti-derivative,
and is aware of the so-called Fundamental Theorem of Calculus which describes the connection between
derivatives and integrals. With that essential background as a starting point, this course explores applications
of the integral to problems in a variety of disciplines, methods for discovering anti-derivatives, techniques for
formulating and solving differential equations, usage of parametric equations and polar coordinates, and properties
of infinite sequences and series. The course consists of readings, lectures, discussions, demonstrations, quizes,
and homework exercise-sets. The class meets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
