## Course Goals

This is the second semester of a standard year-long sequence in single-variable calculus. The main topics are the behavior, derivatives, and integrals of inverse functions; advanced techniques of integration; sequences, series, and Taylor series; some applications of the integral; differential equations; and parametrized curves and polar coordinates. This corresponds to Chapters 6–11 of Stewart (primarily 6, 7, 11) and Chapters 1–7 of Herman–Strang (primarily 3, 5, 6).

By the end of the course, students will acquire the following skills and knowledge: Students will Define logarithm, exponential, and inverse trigonometric functions, explain their basic properties (continuity, derivatives, asymptotes, etc.) and recognize their graphs; Apply these functions to word problems, and correctly interpret the results; Solve integrals using integration by parts, trigonometric substitution and partial fractions; Analyze, create and recognize polar and parametric graphs; Categorize the convergence of an infinite series; Express algebraic and transcendental functions using Maclaurin and Taylor series.

The course syllabus is available here.

## Tests

- Midterm due March 2 at 7 PM
- Final Exam

Graphing calculators will **not** be allowed on tests. Scientific, non-programmable calculators will be allowed. I will have some to share, but not enough for everyone.

## Textbook

The official textbook for Math 1232 is *Calculus*, 8th edition by James Stewart (ISBN-13: 978-1285740621,
ISBN-10: 1285740629). It is a very good (and very expensive) textbook. If you go on to take Calculus 2 or Multivariable Calculus at GW, you will also need this book for those classes.

Another perfectly fine book is *Calculus 2*, by Gilbert Strang and Jed Herman. It is available for free online here.

I will be loosely following Stewart, and will attempt to give references to both books whenever I can. I will not assign problems from either book, but both will contain many problems for if you need extra practice.

Do **not** purchase *Calculus: Early Trancendentals*, also by Stewart: it is not the same book as *Calculus* and it is not used in any mathematics course at GW.

This section of Math 1232 will **not** use WebAssign.
