Introduction
This course is mainly about integration and applications. Also part of the course are the topics of series, approximation of functions, and differential equations. This second course in calculus assumes that you know and can use the basic ideas covered in MTH 141.  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:

1. Calculate integrals using a variety of algebraic and numerical techniques.
2. Solve problems in geometry, physics and probability using integrals.
3. Solve first order ordinary differential equations by graphical, numerical and algebraic techniques, and to set up mathematical models for problems in the sciences.
4. Calculate approximations to functions using the concepts of Taylor and Fourier expansions.
5. Determine properties of convergence of numerical and power series.
6. Treat problems involving modeling, algebraic calculations and numerical calculations by using technology (Maple, graphing calculators).

Evaluation
There will be three Modeling Projects that involve the use of Maple. The course grade will be computed as follows:

Course grade =  ( 100 E1 + 100 E2 + 100 E3 + 200 FE + 100 MP + 100 CW ) / 700

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. Exams will be given outside normal class time, at 6 p.m. on the dates specified in the Course Schedule

Maple Information
We will continue the use Maple in this course. The Maple software is available in most computer labs at both URI 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 at www.math.uri.edu/Center/workc2.html , which combined with the Getting Started with Maple book that came with your text should be enough to help you begin your work.

Attendance,quizzes, homework
Policy on attendance, quizzes and homework will be announced in class. Also, check the FAQ (frequently asked questions) section of the course's web site, where you will find information about Incomplete Grade, Second Grade Option, URI's Civility Policy, and many other topics.

Special Accomodations
Students who need special accomodations and who have documentation from disability services  should make arrangements with their instructor as soon as possible
