Section Description

Calculus II is a continuation of the study of the calculus of functions of one variable begun in MATH 021. Topics will include techniques of integration, including integration by parts, trigonometric substitution, and partial fractions; applications of integration, including arc length and surface area; parametric equations and polar coordinates; sequences and series, including analytic tests for convergence; Taylor series; complex numbers; and an introduction to vectors in two and three dimensions. Topics will be presented with a level of depth and rigor appropriate for students pursuing degrees in technical fields such as mathematics, statistics, engineering, or the physical sciences. A strong background in algebra and pre-calculus, as well as satisfactory completion of MATH 1234, are necessary pre-requisites for the course. Students coming from the MATH 1212-1224 sequence without having taken MATH 021 are advised to take MATH 1242 instead of MATH 1248.

Section Expectation

We will meet four times a week. The MWF meetings will be 50 minutes while the Tuesday meetings will be between 50 minutes and 75 minutes. You will need some form of the textbook; Calculus by James Stewart; 9th edition. If you took math 021 at UVM during fall semester of 2021, you probably already have the book. You will need Webassign to do the course. You may already have a contract with Webassign from math 021. The code numbers for webassign will be sent to you at the end of December or beginning of January. You should expect to spend about 8 to 10 hours on the course per week outside of class.


Your grade will be based on six tests with the lowest test grade dropped, a mandatory comprehensive final exam and homework. All graded work will be webassign.
