MATH 1082 - Single Variable Calculus II Credits: 5
Hours/Week: Lecture NoneLab None
Course Description: This course is the second course of the two-semester sequence of single variable calculus. Topics include applications of the definite integral, techniques of integration, numerical integration, improper integrals, infinite series, elementary differential equations, parametric curves, and polar curves. A graphing calculator is required. Instruction will be provided in the use of the TI-83/TI-84 calculator.
4 Mathematics/Logical Reasoning
Prerequisite(s): MATH 1081 with a grade of C or higher.
Recommendation: Assessment score placement in RDNG 1000 or above, or completion of RDNG 0900 or RDNG 0950 with a grade of C or higher.
