Text: Applied Calculus by Hughes-Hallet, Gleason, Lock et al.
The course is continuation of MTH 131. We shall see more exciting applications of integral and differential calculus to problems in life sciences. We shall study elements of probability and differential equations. In the second part of the semester we shall study functions of more than one variable; that is multivariable calculus.
Calculators: As in MTH 131, a programmable graphing calculator is required in this course. You will be provided with necessary programs for the following types calculators: TI 81,TI 82, TI 83, TI 85, Casio fx-7700GB, Sharp EL-9200, Sharp EL-9300.
Grading:
Your grade will be based on three tests, a final exam, and classwork as
follows:
Three tests at 100 points each | 300 points |
Final exam | 200 points |
Classwork | 100 points |
Total | 600 points |
Tests and the final exam: The tests will
be given in the class. A comprehensive final exam will be
given during the final exam period. Time and place will be announced later.
The exams will reflect the variety of the homework problems. Do not expect
to be asked merely to solve homework problems with the numbers changed.
The best way to prepare for the exams, and to develop confidence in your
ability to solve problems, is to work on the homework problems as suggested.
Your class may be slightly behind or ahead at any given time. Some problems
may be done in class or as homework, as your instructor chooses.
Classwork: The distribution of the 100 points will be decided by your instructor. It may include homework, quizzes, class participation, etc.
