|Prerequisites:||A passing grade in Math 241.|
|Course content:||Math 242 covers two distinct topics. The first topic is the integral calculus, which completes the story of calculus. By the fundamental theorem of calculus, the integral is in many senses the inverse to the derivative. The definite integral is particularly useful for many applications, including valuation of revenue streams. The second topic will be multivariable optimization, first the linear case (which is essentially algebra) and then the general case which requires multivariable calculus.|
|Lectures and Sections:||Lectures will cover the same basic material as the book, but often
from a different viewpoint. They will be given in a combination of
powerpoint outline, for concepts, and chalkboard, for doing problems.
Being able to do problems is most important, of course. To let you
focus on the problems while you are in lecture,
we will post the projected material in advance. See the
lecture notes page, as linked above.
Class attendance is not mandatory
and in a big lecture faces get lost in the crowd, but if you do regularly
participate in lecture by asking and answering questions I will remember you,
which could be helpful to your final grade.
Sections will mainly cover homework problems. There will also be quizzes in many weeks (see the exams page, as linked above). Some sections will focus on Excel labs, meeting in a computer classroom.
|Assignments and exams:||Briefly, there will be homework due almost every week, and five quizzes. There will be a midterm exam and a final exam. There will be four Excel-based assignments.|
|Cell phones:||Turn off your phone during class.|
