Department of Mathematics - RHIT
Topics Outline for MA112 - Calculus II - 2010-11

last posted to site: 08/19/10

Note: The Fall quarter class is predominantly Advanced Placement Freshman. However, some time will be spent reviewing some topics and getting up to speed in Maple. Students taking a course later in the year will have already been instructed in Maple in a prior course.

Text and Text Materials

Text: Thomas' Calculus - Early Transcendentals Twelfth Edition - Weir, Hass
Supplement: Just in Time - bundled with text.
DE Problem supplement: 2004-05 version from Angel

Approximate Timing and Pace

There should be 3 or 4 tests, perhaps a final review day or two. This is integrated into the timing below.
For pedagogical reasons the series material may be taught earlier and the DE material shifted to the final week.
Please note that some additional time needs to be spent teaching Maple MA111 topics for fall sections.
