Intermediate Calculus with Analytic Geometry 




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.
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.
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.
Attendance,quizzes, homework
I will not take attendance. There will be a quiz every day of class.
You are suppose to work out the suggested problems immediately after
we cover the material 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 Accomodations
Students who need special accomodations and who have documentation from
disability services should make arrangements with Dr. Merino as soon
as possible
URI Civility Policy
Teachers at the University of Rhode Island are committed to developing and
actively protecting a class environment in which respect must be shown to

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
