MATH 215 - Calculus II

Credit Hours: 4
Lecture Hours: 4
Laboratory Hours: 0

Prerequisite(s): MATH 210  or equivalent

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

This course is concerned with the integral and its applications, and numerical approximation methods. Technology used is a graphing calculator and a Computer Algebra System. Topics studied are algebraic techniques of integration (such as substitution, parts, and partial fraction decomposition), Reimann, Trapezoid and Simpson numerical approximations to the definite integral, improper integrals, Taylor series, polynomials, and Fourier series. If time permits, a brief introduction to differential equations is included.
