Purpose of Course:  Mathematics is at the foundation of science, and calculus is at the foundation of mathematics. This course is a continuation of Math 136.  Some topics covered include techniques and applications of integration, some differential equations, sequences, infinite series, parametric equations, and polar coordinates.


Prerequisite:  MATH 136 with a C or better.


Attendance Policy:  Registration in a course obligates the student to be regular and punctual in class attendance.  Four or more unexcused absences from class may result in an "F" as final course grade.  A student absent from class bears full responsibility for subject matter and announcements missed.


Testing and Grading:  Students are responsible for material presented in class and the material in the text.  There will be four one-hour in-class tests, each worth 100 points.  The comprehensive final exam, to be given at 10:30 Tuesday, May 7, is worth 150 points.  There will be up to 120 points of daily grades, consisting of homework, quizzes, or projects.  Homework will be assigned and graded regularly using WebAssign.  Some assignments will require MathematicaTM.  Grading will follow the 10-point scale.
