Catalogue Description and Prerequisites
MA 112 Calculus II 5R-0L-5C F,W,S Pre: MA 111 or 102 Techniques of integration, numerical integration, applications of integration. L'Hopital's rule and improper integrals. Separable first order differential equations, applications of separable first order differential equations. Series of constants, power series, Taylor polynomials, Taylor and McLaurin series.
Prerequisite: All of the topics in MA111 will be assumed.
- Introduce students to integral calculus (including elementary first order differential equations); see topics 1, 2 and 3 below in Topics Covered below for specific topics.
- Introduce students to the application of the integral calculus and differential equations in science and engineering; see topics 2 and 3 below in Topics Covered
- Introduction students to series of constants and functions, and the notions of approximation and convergence
- Develop student mathematical modeling and problem solving skills.
- Develop student ability to use a computer algebra system (CAS) to aid
in the analysis of quantitative problems. This includes (but is certainly
not limited to) mastery of the commands listed in Performance Standards
- Develop student ability to communicate mathematically.
- Introduce applications of mathematics, especially to science and engineering.
Textbook and other required materials
Textbook: Thomas' Calculus - Early Transcendentals
Twelfth Edition - Weir, Hass
Supplement: Just in Time - bundled with text.
DE Problem supplement: 2004-05 version from Angel
Computer Usage: Maple14 must be available on your laptop
Note: The Fall quarter class is predomiantly Advanced Placement Freshman.
However, some time will be spent reviewing some topics and getting up to speed
in Maple. Student taking the course later in the will have already been instructed
in Maple in a prior course.

- Integration by parts
- Integration by partial fraction decomposition
- Other integration techniques
- L'Hopital's rule (may be taught in Calc I, review as needed)
- Improper integrals

- Taylor and Mclaurin series of basic functions
Course Requirements and Policies
The following policies and requirements will apply to all sections and classes:
A summary of the computer policy page:
Students will be expected to demonstrate a minimal level of competency with a relevant computer algebra system. The computer algebra system will be an integral part of the course and will be used regularly in class work, in homework assignments and during quizzes/exams. Students will also be expected to demonstrate the ability to perform certain elementary computations by hand. (See Performance Standards below.)
With regard to be "by hands" computational skills, each student should
- Know all derivative rules listed in the MA
111 syllabus plus
- Know anti-derivatives for xn, exp(x), 1/x, sin(x), cos(x),
sec2 (x), 1/(x2+1), 1/sqrt(1-x2), cosh(x), and sinh(x) with respect to x, and linear combinations of these functions.
- Be able to use integration by parts, u-substitution, and partial fraction decomposition to evaluate simple integrals.
- Be able to solve simple separable first order ODE's
These by-hands skills may be tested using in class quizzes.
With regard to basic Maple commands, by the end of MA 112 every student should be able to:
- Use all Maple commands expected in MA 111.
- Use the int command to compute anti-derivatives.
- Use evalf with the Int command to approximate integrals numerically.
Final Exam Policy
The following is an extract from the final exam policy page. Consult the policy page for complete details.
The final exam will consist of two parts. The first part will be "by hands" (paper, pencil). No computing devices (calculators/computers) will be allowed during the first part of the final exam. This part of the exam will cover both computational fundamentals as well as some conceptual interpretation, though the level of difficulty and depth of conceptual interpretation must take into account that this part of the exam will be shorter than the second part of the exam. The laptop, starting with a blank Maple work sheet, and a calculator, may be used during the second part of the exam. No "cheat sheets", prepared Maple worksheets or prepared program on the calculator may be used. The second part of the exams will cover all skills: concepts, calculation, modeling, problem solving, and interpretation.
Individual Instructor Policies
Your instructor will determine the following for your class:
*Note that most instructors will enforce some type of grade penalty for students with more than four unexcused absences.
- the grading scheme, based on the various course components.
- the number and format of hour exams, quizzes, homework assignments, in class assignments, and projects,
- the policies governing the work items above, e.g., whether the computer will be used, what collaboration is allowed, and the format of assignments.
- all policies for classroom procedure, including group work, class participation, laptop use and attendance*.
