This section of MTH142 is not coordinated with the other sections. We will, however, be following a very similar format.
EXTRA CREDIT ASSIGNMENTS
Introduction This second course in calculus assumes that you know and can use the basic ideas covered in MTH 141. It is a 4 credit course, and a challenging one. You should plan on spending about 7-8 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.
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:
Your Grade There will be a total of 700 points available as follows:
Class work One way I like to inspire students to come to class is to give you work to do in class. You hand this work in for class credit. I keep track of this work and it is the class work portion of your grade. (40pts out of 100pts)
Hour Exams - 300 Final Exam - 200 Maple Assignments - 100 Class work - 100
Homework Keep this in a notebook. You must be self disciplined to do all of the suggested homework problems and to make sure each one is done correctly. Remember you learn math by doing it. Doing all of your homework is essential. It helps you to practice doing all of the problems so that you can do them quickly enough when the time comes to take a test. Bring this notebook to my office hours to show me your work and ask questions. I will ask students to put up homework problems on the board in class. This will count as extra credit toward the class work, homework, and quiz portion of your grade.

Guide for students:
Calculus is a demanding course. You must study the material frequently in order to learn and retain it. Not only do we sk you to know definitions and apply methods to solve basic exercises, but also understand ideas and apply them to solve word problems. A good way to study is to meet with a study group to go over your solutions to the suggested homework problems. Remember - success in this class depends on you and how much work you put into it.
Materials you will need for the course are:
The following are suggestions for during class.
Between classes, it is recommended that you take the following steps.
