Course created by Frank Bäuerle and Anthony Tromba
Calculus for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics
The definite integral and the fundamental theorem of calculus. Areas, volumes. Integration by parts, trigonometric substitution, and partial fractions methods. Improper integrals. Sequences, series, absolute convergence and convergence tests. Power series, Taylor and Maclaurin series. Students cannot receive credit for both this course and course 11B, Applied Math and Statistics 11B and 15B, or Economics 11B.
With a focus on integral calculus and infinite series, Math 19B/Calculus 2 is a standard second calculus course with applications to nearly all quantitative-based courses of study including chemistry, computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, information systems management, mathematics, and physics majors. Whether it’s understanding the concept of area under a graph, volumes of surface areas of three-dimensional solids, calculating definite and indefinite integrals using a variety of techniques or computing the Taylor series of a function, the online format of Calculus 2 allows students greater ability to self-pace their learning, experiment and use technology to further their knowledge and understanding through an interactive and dynamic E-Book and other learning tools. The course offers students an online discussion forum to post questions relating to the video lectures, homework, reading, and course logistics. Students are encouraged to respond to each others questions, and instructors and TA’s monitor these forums, responding to student questions as well. In addition, the teaching staff hold regular online office hours, as well as optional discussion sections.
