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.
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 February 13, March 20, and April 17. 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:
Course grade = ( 100 E1 + 100 E2 + 100 E3 + 200 FE + 100 MP + 200 CW ) / 800
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 semesteryou 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.
