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 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
There will be two Modeling Projects that involve the use of Maple. The course grade will be computed as follows:

Course grade =  ( E1 + E2 + E3 + 2 FE +  MP +  Q ) / 700

Key: E1 = Exam 1, E2 = Exam 2, E3 = Exam 3, FE = Final Exam, MP = Maple/Modeling Projects, Q = Quizzes.

#### 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 http://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.

Special Accommodate
Students who need special accommodations and who have documentation from disability services should make arrangements with their instructor as soon as possible
.

Quizzes

Quizzes account for 100 out of the 700 points of your final grade.  You should do all the homework problems given on the syllabus to be prepared for the quizzes.  Check your own work to see if it is correct and get help if you do not know how to do some of the problems.  There is a Learning Assistance Center run by math graduate students to help you.

Check the website:  http://www.math.uri.edu/Info/tutoring/

Also you can send me e-mail or make an appointment to see me necessary.  We will have about 12 quizzes during the semester.  The questions will be similar to homework problems.   The quizzes will always cover sections, which we went over in previous classes.  The two lowest quiz grades will be dropped.

Tips for success

Attend class and do all your homework. That's it!  That is the secret to success in calculus!  Here are a few more related suggestions.

MTH 142-2000 Calendar and Syllabus Summer 2004

The following calendar gives a timetable for the course. Your class may be slightly behind or ahead at any given time. Some of the problems may be done in class, others as homework. Your instructor will be more specific. You should work out all of the problems given below, and others if possible. NOTE: Maple Modeling Projects will be collected on dates announced by your instructor.
