Important deadlines you need to know

The semester begins Monday, July 2nd, and ends Wednesday, August 1st.

The deadline to drop/add and the last day to change credit/audit is Tuesday, July 3rd. The first day in which a “W” grade is assigned is therefore Wednesday, July 4th.

The last day to obtain a “W” grade or to elect a pass/fail grade is Friday, July 13th. The first day in which a “WF” grade is assigned is therefore Saturday, July 14th.

Prerequisites

Qualifications through placement or a grade of C or better in MATH 141.

Calculus. Early Transcendentals by James Stewart. Thompson Brooks/Cole 2008 (sixth edition)



[Calculus: Early Transcendentals (Stewart’s Calculus Series) (See all Calculus Books)]

Course Structure and Grading Policies

Your final score for the course will be computed as follows:

F = 0.15 * (HW + Q + CL + ME) + 0.4 * FE
  • Homework assignments: (up to 100 points) 15% of the course grade. Homework problems have been assigned for each lecture (you can see them at the end of this page, under Lesson Plan). A selection of those problems are posted on WebAssign on the day of the lecture, and will be graded. You will have until the end of the following day to complete the assignment (e.g. what is posted on Tuesday morning, is due on Wednesday at 11:59PM)

    In order to sign up for our section of the course on WebAssign, visit www.webassign.net and click on [I have a Class Key]. The class key for this course is

  • Quizzes: (up to 100 points) 15% of the course grade. Only the 10 best scores have an impact on your course grade. A 10-minute quiz will be given in class every morning session, except on the day of the midterm, the next day, and the last week of classes. At the end of the course, you will have taken 12 quizzes. There will be no make-up quizzes, since only the best 10 grades count towards the course grade.
  • Computer Labs: (up to 100 points) 15% of the course grade.
  • Midterm Exam: (up to 100 points) 15% of the course grade. There will be one in-class midterm exam scheduled on Wednesday July 11th, during the morning session.

    No make-up tests will be given. Only medical, death in the family, religious or official USC business reasons are valid excuses for missing a test and must be verified by letter from a doctor, guardian or supervisor to the instructor.

  • Final Exam: (up to 100 points) 25% of the course grade. The final exam is scheduled on Friday, August 3rd from 10:30 AM to 12:45 PM.

The course grade will be determined as follows:

GRADE RANGE
A 90%-100%
B+ 85%-89%
B 80%-84%
C+ 75%-79%
C 70%-74%
D+ 65%-69%
D 60%-64%
F below 60%

ATTENDANCE POLICY: Attendance is mandatory. Penalties to your final grade apply as follows:

  • Students missing four sessions without a valid excuse will have their final grade lowered by half a letter grade (e.g. from C to D+).
  • Students missing six sessions without a valid excuse will have their final grade lowered by a full letter grade (e.g. from B to C)
  • Students missing eight sessions without a valid excuse will have their final grade lowered by a letter-and-a-half (e.g. from A to C+)

Further Information

  • Remember to change your e-mail address on Blackboard if necessary [blackboard.sc.edu]
  • ADA: If you have special needs as addressed by the Americans with Dissabilities Act and need any assistance, please notify the instructor immediately.
  • The Math Tutoring Center is a free tutoring service for MATH 111, 115, 122, 141, 142, 170, 221, 222, and 241. The center also maintains a list of private tutors for math and statistics. The center is located in LeConte, room 105, and the schedule is available at the Department of Mathematics website (www.math.sc.edu). No appointment is necessary.
  • The Student Success Center and one of four Academic Centers for Excellence (ACE) are on the mezzanine level of the Thomas Cooper Library and can be reached by phone at (803) 777-0684 or by going online at www.sc.edu/academicsuccess Other ACE locations around campus make access to these resources easy (Sims Hall, Bates House, Columbia Hall). The centers are at the crossroads of services and information about many special resources for stucents, including advice on developing successful study habits, time management, and effective learning strategies as well as availability of tutoring.

Learning Outcomes

A student who successfully completes Calculus II (MATH 142) should continue to develop as an independent learner with the ability to approach problems from a conceptual viewpoint, to utilize more than one idea in a single problem, and to apply appropriate calculus skills to problems in context. In particular, the successful student will master concepts and gain skills needed to solve problems related to:

  • Techniques of integration
    • Substitution
    • Integration by parts
    • Trigonometric integrals and trigonometric substitution
    • Partial fractions
  • Improper integrals
  • Applications of integration in Geometry, Science and Engineering
    • Area
    • Volume by disks and shells
    • Average value
  • Convergence of sequences and series
    • n-th term test (for divergence)
    • Integral test
    • Comparison test
    • Ratio test
    • Root test
    • Alternating series test
  • Power series
  • Taylor and Maclaurin series
  • Applications of Taylor polynomials
  • Polar coordinates
  • Area and length in polar coordinates
