Description: Transcendental functions, formal integration, polar coordinates, infinite sequences and series, parametric equations, with applications to the physical sciences and engineering.
Prerequisites: MATH 1131 or advanced placement credit for calculus (a score of 4 or 5 on the Calculus AB exam or a score of 3 on the Calculus BC exam). Recommended preparation: A grade of C- or better in MATH 1131.
Textbook Information: EITHER Calculus: Early Transcendentals (this includes Multivariable Calculus), 8th Edition, by James Stewart with WebAssign Access Code OR Single Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 8th Edition, by James Stewart with WebAssign Access Code.
There are three ways to purchase the text and the WebAssign access code:
- Get the text and WebAssign access code bundled together at a discount from the publisher for either single variable (1132 and/or 1132) or bundled with multivariable (1131, 1132, 2110) here.
- Get the text and WebAssign access code bundled together at the UConn Co-op.
- Get the text separately from anywhere, and buy the WebAssign access code when you access your homework through HuskyCT.
We do not recommend using the third option above, because if you buy the WebAssign access code separately then you will have to buy it for 95 dollars for one semester of calculus or 110 dollars for two or three semesters of calculus; by comparison, the cost of the book and WebAssign access code bundled together (from the publisher’s website or from the UConn Co-op) is less than 95 dollars. The option to buy the text and WebAssign access code bundled together lets you use that access code for the life of the edition of the textbook.
Graphing calculators: TI 82, 83, 84, 84 plus, 85 or 86 are sufficient and NO HIGHER POWERED CALCULATORS ARE ACCEPTABLE. In particular TI 89 and TI-NSpire are not allowed.
|Clickers will be used lectures 010, 030, 050 but NOT in lecture 070. If you are enrolled in a lecture using clickers you must register your i>clicker in your HuskyCT page for the lecture you attend, even if you registered an i>clicker in Math 1131 last semester.IMPORTANT ONLNE CLICKER REGISTRATION INFORMATION:
Warning: The web version of i>clicker (Apps for iPhone, Android, etc.) will not work in the classrooms.
Homework and WebAssign:
|Homework: To access the homework you will have to go through Husky CT single sign-on. In your account you will find a link to do your homework using WebAssign. There will be homework assignments for each section of the text. Each assignment will be made available on WebAssign several days before the section is covered in class. The due date for each assignment will be set by your instructor and will generally be two or three days after the material is covered in class.You will get five attempts for each question that is not multiple choice and fewer than five attempts for each multiple choice question; the exact number of attempts will depend on the number of choices. After each attempt, you will be told whether your answer is correct or not. If you are not able to get the correct answer after your initial attempts, we recommend that you seek help from your instructor, the Q-Center, a tutor, or another student. If you miss the due date on homework you can get an extension for up to two days after the due date, but you will only be able to receive 50% credit for the homework. Warning: When accessing your online homework, use Firefox or Chrome as your browser; there are problems that can occur if you use Internet Explorer or Safari.Here is a document with tips on using WebAssign.|
|WebAssign Registration: The homework for Math 1132 is assigned online using the WebAssign online homework system. To access your homework online you must go to Husky CT.|
Exams, Quizzes, and Worksheets:
|Exams: The midterm exams in this course will be multiple choice, and as such there will be no partial credit on midterm exams. The final exam will be part multiple choice, part short answer. Look here for more detailed exam information in the future.|
|Quizzes: There will be weekly quizzes in discussion section that will cover material from the week before. These will not be multiple choice and therefor you will be able to get partial credit on Quiz questions.
On exam weeks you will get the opportunity to submit a “summary quiz” which is the previous quizzes that you have redone. Summary quizzes are graded on completion, so if you submit a complete summary quiz you will get an extra quiz grade of 10/10. If you do not submit a summary quiz, you will get an extra grade which is the average of your grades for the quizzes included in the summary quiz.
|Worksheets: There will be weekly worksheets that you must turn in to your TA. Worksheets can be found in the Learning Activities section of this website.|
