Introduction
This
second course in calculus assumes that you know and can use the
basic ideas covered in MTH 141. It is a 4credit course,
and a challenging one. You should plan on spending about 78
hours per week, outside of class, working problems, reading
the text, and working on Projects. As in MTH 141, we will approach
new ideas and problems from algebraic, graphical, and numerical
points of view.
Goals
and Objectives.
The
goals are to have you develop symbol manipulation skills, mathematical
modelling skills, skills in the use of technology to treat mathematical
problems, an understanding of the language of calculus, and an
appreciation for the uses of calculus in the sciences.
At
the conclusion of this semester you should be able to:
Evaluation
There
will be three exams given outside of class, on Tuesday evenings
at 6:007:30 PM, on October 2nd, November 6th and December 4th.
A comprehensive final exam will be given during the regular final
exam period. Locations will be announced in class. Also, there
will be three Modeling Projects that involve the use of Maple.
The projects are due the week before each test. The course grade
will be computed as follows:
Key: E1 = Exam 1, E2 = Exam 2, E3 = Exam 3, FE = Final Exam, MP = Maple/Modeling Projects, CW = Class Work. Class Work may include collected homework, quizzes, or other. Your instructor will give you more details.
Maple
Information
We
will continue the use Maple in this course. The Maple software
is available in most computer labs at both Kingston and Providence
sites.
If you did not take MTH 141 at URI last semester you might be unfamiliar with Maple. There is an introductory worksheet www.math.uri.edu/Center/ which combined with the Getting Started with Maple book that came with your text should be enough to help you begin your work. Instructions for using Maple in labs can be found in the course's web page.
