This course is the continuation of Math 220 (Calculus I). Topics which we will discuss include: techniques and applications of integration, infinite series, Taylor and MacLaurin series, parametric equations and polar coordinates.

This is anActive Learningsection under the auspices of the University First-Year Discovery Program. Class time will consist of brief (5-15 minute) lectures followed by in-class group work. Each week there will be an accompanying two-hour lab, also done in groups.

**Course Text:***Calculus from Graphical, Numerical, and Symbolic Points of View*(second edition), by A. Ostebee and P. Zorn (Brooks-Cole, 2002).**Other required equipment**: A graphing calculator is required for this course. TI calculators (through TI-86) are preferred, but other models are fine.*Make sure to bring the textbook and your calculator to every class!*We will cover part or all of Chapters 6,7,8,9,10 and 11 of the text, as well as Chapter V on vectors and polar coordinates. There will be some extra material not included in the text which I will photocopy and distribute at the appropriate time.

This is an

It is essential that you read the textbook before coming to class! The text by Ostebee and Zorn is designed to be read. For each class period there will be a reading assignment of 5-10 pages. You will be expected to contribute to the discussion at the beginning of class based on what you have read. I may have occasional short (unannounced) reading quizzes.

The graphing calculator will be a significant learning aid, and you will use it frequently in class, on the homework, and while studying. Use of the calculator on exams will be decided on a case-by-case basis, and will be announced in advance of the exam.

**Group work:**You will be assigned to a small group every day. At the end of each day, I will collect work from each member of the group. One of the papers from each group will be chosen at random, and the entire group will receive the grade for that paper. I will drop your lowest two group work scores.**Homework:**will be assigned every class, and will be due at the beginning of the following class. I will grade a selection of problems from each homework. I will drop your lowest three homework scores.**Labs:**Each week there will be a two hour lab. During this time you will work in a group on a more intensive assignment. These groups will be slightly more stable than the daily groups; they will change after each midterm exam. As with the daily group work, each student will turn in the lab assignment, and only one solution to each problem will be graded (not necessarily all from the paper of a single member of the group!). The entire group will receive the same grade on the lab. I reserve the right to give an individual a lower score than the remainder of the group if his or her participation is deemed insufficient.**Project:**Each student will be required to complete a short project outside of class.**February 11**: deadline to confirm with me your proposed topic for the project.**April 15**: deadline to turn in your completed project.

**Exams:**There will be four one-hour midterm exams and a cumulative final exam. Dates for the midterm exams will be announced later. The final exam is on**Friday, May 13**(sorry!) from**8:00 to 11:00am**in**140 Henry Building**.**zero**if you do not reach the 85% level on one of the retakes. Most students will need at most one retake.

**Grading Policy:**Grades will be computed according to the following percentages:Homework 10% Group work 10% Lab work 10% Project 5% First Midterm 10% Second Midterm 10% Third Midterm 10% Fourth Midterm 10% Final 25%

**Policies regarding late assignments:**Daily homework will**not**be accepted after the start of class on the following class day. In-class group work and labs will be excused if arrangements have been made with me*before*the deadline. However, exceptions can be made in other cases, for example, for documented medical or family emergency.No make-up midterm exams will be given. If one of the three non-mastery midterm exams is missed because of a serious and documented illness or emergency, the remaining non-mastery exams will be rescaled. For example, if one non-mastery exam is missed, the remaining two exams will each count 15%. Midterm exams missed for any other reasons will be counted as failures.

I will schedule a conflict time for the final exam. If you have a conflict with the date of the final or any of the midterm exams, please contact me to discuss the matter as soon as you are aware of the conflict.
