Syllabus
and Schedule
Tutoring is now available daily in Lippitt 103. See tutoring schedule for details.
Important for
Wiley Plus! 
Every student must register for his or her own
section of WileyPlus:
Be sure to register for
your section and only your section.
Once you go to your Class Section URL, click on ``register.'' Watch the
registration tutorial http://www.wileyplus.com/register if you need help.
Note: You will not be prompted for a Registration Code,
but you still need to register in the course!



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:
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. The final exam is worth 250 points. Classwork, including
quizzes and homework as determined by your instructor, is worth 100
points. Your 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. If you did not take MTH 141
at URI last semester you might be unfamiliar with Maple. The first
worksheet, among the ones listed below, provides a good introduction to
Maple.
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.
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.
Maple
Worksheets
for Calculus II
Maple worksheets for Calculus
II are
essentially meant to be a continuation of the set of worksheets for
Calculus I. However, the introductory worksheet reviews all the
necessary syntax which makes the set selfcontained. Some of our URI
Calculus II students last semester had no prior exposure to Maple and
they had no trouble catching up.
