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 1231 is OpenStax Calculus Volume 2 by Gilbert Strang and Edwin Herman. It is available for free online here. You can also buy copies from Amazon; a paperback is a little under $30. During the first few weeks of the course we will also reference volume 1 on a regular basis.

I will be loosely following the textbook, but will often be giving my own take or focusing on topics the textbook doesn’t emphasize. All my course notes will be posted to the course web page.

We will be using a (free!) online homework system called WeBWorK this term. You can access it by going to Blackboard, then to “Course Links”, and clicking the WeBWorK link. This will automatically create an account for you and log you in. You may continue to log in through Blackboard, or if you wish you may create a password within WeBWorK to log in directly.

## 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.
