Text:
Calculus, 7th e, James Stewart (Brooks/Cole).

Technology:
The TI-83/84 calculator is used for this course. You may NOT share calculators during quizzes or exams. The use of cell phones, pagers, text or other messaging devices is not allowed during class.

Prerequisites:
Math 2253

Course objectives:
A continuation of MATH 2253: Topics include differentiation and integration of transcendental functions, integration techniques, indeterminate forms, l'Hospital's rule, improper integrals, infinite sequences and series, Maclaurin and Taylor series, conic sections, and polar coordinates.

Upon completing this course students should be able to:

1. Compute derivatives and integrals for common transcendental functions, and analyze their graphs.
2. Find indefinite and improper integrals using different integration techniques, apply L'Hopital's rule for indeterminate forms.
3. Use various tests to determine series convergence, perform standard operations with convergent power series, find Taylor and Maclaurin representations.
4. Write parametric equations of conic sections, sketch their graphs in polar and Cartesian coordinates, use conic sections to solve applied problems.

Homework, Quizzes and Examinations:
Homework will be assigned daily, but will not be collected without advance warning. Questions on homework problems can be answered in Office Hours and/or in class. Quizzes will occur frequently, and occasionally without warning. Quiz questions will typically come from homework problems. There will be four in-class examinations, and a final.

In-class examinations will be valued at 15% each, quizzes will total to 15%, and the final will be valued at 25%.

Honesty:
SPSU has an Honor Code and a procedure for handling cases when academic misconduct is alleged. All students should be aware of them. Information about the Honor Code and the misconduct procedure may be found at http://www.spsu.edu/honorcode/.

Absence:
If I am contacted with an acceptable excuse before the date of the quiz or exam, then a makeup can be arranged. An acceptable excuse is in writing, contains the student's name, the date of the absence, a signature from a faculty member sponsoring the trip, contact information for the faculty member, and a brief mention of the nature of the trip.

Special needs:
I will attempt to accommodate all students with special needs to the best of my ability, but it is the responsibility of the student to make their needs known to me. Students with disabilities who believe they may need accommodations in this class are encouraged to contact the person working with disabilities at 678-915-7244 as soon as possible to better assure that such accommodations are implemented in a timely fashion.

Assistance:
For help with your homework, or questions about the lectures, you have a lot of options. I will take a limited number of questions during class, as time permits. I am available in my office for help during my posted office hours, and any unscheduled time my door is open. For additional help, there are campus-wide resources I will announce as soon as I have the details.
