About MATH 1224 B

Techniques and applications of integration. An introduction to multi-variable calculus: partial derivatives and double integrals. Prerequisite: MATH 1212 or MATH 1234.


Prereqs enforced by the system: MATH 1212 or MATH 1234; Open to Degree and PACE students

Section Description

You will master the basic methods of finding integrals (in one variable), solving differential equations (ditto), calculating probabilities and associated quantities (mean, median, variance, standard deviation), and solving problems in multivariable calculus (max/min, simple integrals). You will see enough of the theory behind these to understand, at least qualitatively, why they work instead of just taking them on faith as "recipes''. The textbook will be 'Calculus for Business, Economics, Life Sciences, and Social Sciences' (14th edition) by Barnett, Ziegler, Byleen, and Stocker. It should be in the bookstore. Approximate course contents: We will cover (in this order) chapters 6 (review of integration plus new methods), 9 (simple differential equations), 11 (topics in probability), and 7 (multivariable calculus).

Section Expectation

Read the assignments, come to class, do the homework, take the exams. Come to office hours or otherwise contact me if you have questions.


Your grade will be based on a combination of homework, 3 in-class exams, and a final exam. Approximately once a week I will assign homework using MyMathLab. Use of MyMathLab is required. Homework will count for 40% of your grade. I will give 3 in-class exams, each lasting the whole period. Each of these exams will count for 10% of your grade, for a total of 30%. The final will be worth 30%.
