Solutions

Course objective

This course is a continuation of the study of single variable calculus. This course covers applications of integration, inverse functions, techniques of integration, and sequences and series. Roughly, we will cover Chapters 5, 6, 11 and some part of Chapter 7 of the textbook. If time permits, we discuss Chapter 10 on polar coordinates.

Prerequisite

Math 1206 (Calculus I) or its equivalence. We will assume that you have studied the following concepts: the limit, the derivative and its applications, the antiderivatives, the definite integral, the fundamental theorem of calculus.

Grading

I will grade on a curve. Final grades will be computed according to the following breakdown:

Participation 5 %
Homework 25 %
Midterm Exams 3 x 13.33 %
Final 30 %

Calculator or computer

Only four function or scientific calculators are permitted on midterm tests and the final. Use of graphing calculators, computers, smartphones or any other electronic devices is not allowed.

Homework

Both online and offline homework will be assigned. Online homework will be handled through WebWork, a website for submitting your homework online. Details on signing up for WebWork will be given during the first two weeks of classes.

There will be also (bi-)weekly offline homework, to improve your mathematical writing. It will be collected on Friday, before the class starts. I highly recommend you to work in groups and help each other, but do not copy someone’s steps directly. You must understand how to solve the problems.

I don’t accept any late submission or e-mail submission unless there is some medical/family emergency. For instance, “I cannot access WebWork for some reason.” is not an acceptable excuse. Do early.

Additional materials

I will post solutions of tests and homework. Check the course webpage regularly, at least once in a week. It is always advisable to work as many additional problems from the book as you have time for. In each week I will post on the course webpage a list of recommended problems. You don’t need to submit a solution of recommended prob- lems, but studying them will be very helpful to improve your mathematical writing skill.

Test

There will be three midterm tests and a cumulative final exam. The exam schedule, which will depend on the course progress, will be announced later. The final is cumulative. Make up exams will not be given unless you have a documented reason.

Attendance

Coming to every class during the official academic term is required. Attendance will be taken intermittently. This will be included in the “participation” portion of your grade.

Math Help Room

From the second week of classes, the Math Help Room in JMH 410 welcomes all students to drop by with any math questions. Faculty and upper class math majors will stay and help you.

Academic integrity

As a Fordham University student, you have agreed to abide by the University’s academic integrity policy. All academic work must meet the standards described in http://www.fordham.edu/info/20322/academic_advising/3030/academic_integrity. Lack of knowledge of the academic integrity policy is not a reasonable explanation for a violation. Questions related to course assignments and the academic integrity policy should be directed to the instructor.

Disclaimer

The course syllabus is a general plan for the course; deviations announced to the class by the instructor may be necessary.
