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. Knowledge of
Differentiation Rules is very important for the first part
of this course. Make sure you review them.
How to
succeed in
MTH142
 Spend about 8
hours per week, outside
of class, working on problems, reading the text, and working on other
projects.
Sometime during the first week of class, set up your weekly schedule so
that specific days and times are reserved for working out math problems.
 Buy a notebook
where you will write
solutions to all the recommended problems.
 Save all quizzes,
handouts, and any
other work. Use them to prepare yourself for tests.
 Establish a group
of fellow students
to work with.
 Come to class
every time!
Skipping class, even only a couple of times, will translate
into
a lower course grade.
 When you come to office hours bring your work with you.
 The Academic Enhancement Center,
AEC, located on the 4th floor of Roosevelt Hall can help students.
Call 8742367, or stop by the 4th floor of Roosevelt Hall for
more information.
Goals
and
Objectives
The goals are to have you
develop symbol
manipulation skills, mathematical modeling 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
The course grade will be
computed as follows:
1). There will be a Gateway Derivative Quiz which you
should pass
at the latest by October 6th, 2009 (one day before the First Exam).
If you do not pass it by the deadline, 1/3 of your final letter grade
will be dropped at the end of the term. (Example, if you fail to pass the
gateway derivative quiz by the deadline, instead of getting an "A" in the
class, you will be getting an "A" as your final letter grade.) Passing the
derivative quiz means getting 8 problems right out of 10! In the quiz you
will only be
required to apply the differentiation rules (including the chain rule) and
you won't be asked to simplify your answer.
Your first opportunity to pass the derivative quiz will be in class, the
second day that you meet your instructor, after that there will be two evening
derivative quizzes
common to all sections (one on September 15th, the second on September 22nd).
Please see the box above for time and location of these exams. If you
still do not pass after the second evening
derivative quiz, you will have to take the quiz again, during your instructor's
office hours.
2). There will be
three evening exams on Wednesdays, from 6 pm  7:30 pm,
common for all sections. The location for each section is listed in the
box
above. A comprehensive final exam will be common for all sections. The
time and place will be announced.
* Each evening exam is worth 100 points for a total of 300 points
* The final exam is worth 250 points.
* Classwork, including quizzes and homework, is worth 100 points.
* Maple assignments will be worth 50 points.
Your
final grade will be based on your percentage of these 700 points.
Maple Information
We will continue to use Maple
in this course. The Maple software is available in most computer labs
at both URI Kingston and Providence sites. This semester we will have two maple projects: one related to
Polar Coordinates (Section 8.3) and one related to solving Differential
Equations, and Slope Fields (Sections 11.1 and 11.2). If you follow the
instructions given in the project descriptions you will be able to run Maple
without any problem, even if you never use it before.
Maple Project I: Polar Coordinates (PDF)
Maple Project II: Slope Fields (PDF)
Calculators
A
TI83 or TI84 is highly recommended. Calculators are valuable for
checking homework, but will NOT be
allowed on quizzes or exams.
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, etc.
You are expected to abide by the University's civility policy:
"The University of Rhode Island is committed to developing and actively
protecting a class environment in which respect must be shown to everyone in
order to facilitate the expression, testing, understanding, and creation of a
variety of ideas and opinions. Rude, sarcastic, obscene or disrespectful speech
and disruptive behavior have a negative impact on everyone's learning and are
considered unacceptable. The course instructor will have disruptive persons
removed from the class."
Cell phones, IPods, beepers and any electronic device must be turned off in
class!!
You are required to do your own work unless specifically told otherwise by your
instructor. In support of honest students, those discovered cheating on
assignments or exams will receive a grade of zero on the assignment or exam.
Use of unauthorized aids such as cheat sheets or information stored in
calculator memories, will be considered cheating. The Mathematics Department
and the University strongly promote academic integrity.
Illness Due to Flu:
The H1N1 Flu Pandemic may impact classes this semester. If any of us
develop flulike symptoms, we are being advised to stay home until
the fever has subsided for 24 hours. So, if you exhibit such
symptoms, please do not come to class. Notify your instructor by phone
or by email of your status. Your instructor will communicate by email or
by phone with you. In this way you and your instructor will work together to
ensure that course instruction and work is completed for the
semester.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have posted simple
methods to avoid transmission of illness. These include: covering
your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing;
frequently washing your hands to protect from germs; avoiding
touching your eyes, nose and mouth; and staying home when you are
sick. For more information, please view
http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/habits.htm
URI information on the H1N1 will be posted on the URI website at
http://www.uri.edu/news/h1n1,
with links to the
http://www.cdc.gov site.
Special
Accommodations
Students
who need special
accommodations and who have documentation from Disability Services
should make arrangements with their instructor as soon as possible.
Students
should contact Disability Services for Students, Office of Student Life,
330 Memorial Union, 8742098.
