Intermediate Calculus with Analytic Geometry 



Check out the set of differential equations practice problems (Chapter 11)  
FINAL EXAM: MONDAY MAY 10, 36 P.M., INDEPENDENCE AUDITORIUM 
Introduction
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:
Evaluation
There will be three Modeling
Projects that involve the use of Maple. 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. Exams will be given outside normal
class time, at 6 p.m. on the following dates: Tuesday February 3rd,
Tuesday March 2nd, and Tuesday April 6th.
Location will be announced later.
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. There is also the Mathematics Department's Cyber Lab, located at 101 Tyler Hall, which is staffed with Maple helpers whenever it is open.
Attendance,quizzes,
homework
Policy on attendance, quizzes
and homework will be announced in class. Also, check the FAQ (frequently asked
