COURSE OUTLINE

INSTRUCTOR: K. Q. Lan, Office: S514 Ross Building, tel: 736-2100 ext 33956, e-mail: kunquan@mathstat.yorku.ca

OFFICE HOURS Tues. Thur. 1:00-2:30 in S514 Ross Building. The instructor is available at these times for individual assistance and consultation, and is also available at other times by appointment. In addition, as long as the instructor is in the office, you are also welcome to come in to get extra help.

LECTURES Tues. Thur. 8:30-10:00 AM, in Curtis Lecture Hall C.

TEXT S. O. Kochman, Calculus: Concept, Applications and Theory, Part II, available from the bookstore as the course kit for Math 1310.

If you do not have Part I, then you will also need to purchase an additional course kit labeled Part IA which contains review material and Chapter 3.

MATH LAB Assistance with mathematical questions on the course or the homework is available at the Mathematics and Statistics Laboratory, room S525 Ross. The dates and hours will be announced in class.

WEB PAGE There is a web page for this course which contains the course outline, homework problems, the course schedule as well as solutions to quizzes and tests. The address of this web page is: http://www.math.yorku.ca/Who/Faculty/kunquan/1310/ or http://www.math.yorku.ca/Who/Faculty/kunquan/

SYLLABUS: We shall study the following sections:

Chapter 3: sections 4,5,7;

Chapter 4: sections 1-7, 9;

Chapter 5: sections 1-5, 7.

Note that we will not cover all the sections of each chapter.

Integral calculus is the study of computing areas. By the fundamental Theorem of Calculus, integration is the inverse operation of differentiation. We shall cover the basic techniques of computing integrals. In addition, logarithm and exponential functions will be studied. Applications will be made to computing volume, distance, mass, work and solving simple differential equations. the second part of this course studies infinite series. In particular, power series representations of definite integrals will be used to approximate the values of these integrals. A more detailed list of topics is contained in the table of contents of the text.

HOMEWORK You are expected to do the assigned homework. Experience has shown that the only way to learn math is to do it. The amount you learn in this course and the grade you receive will be proportional to the amount of time you spend doing problems. There will be a weekly quiz each Thursday at 9:30am with one problem analogous to one of the assigned homework problems or examples given in class. Each marked quiz will be available for pickup at the Math Lab the following Tuesday.

EXAMS: There will be three-in class exams and a 3 hour final exam. (There will be no quiz during the week of an exam.)

MARKS: The final exam will count as 35% of your mark, each in class exam will count as 15% of your mark and the quizzes will count as 20% of your mark.

MISSED EXAMS: There will be no make-up exams for missed quizzes or missed in-class exams. Upon presentation of documentation of a valid excuse the corresponding percentage of the final mark will be added to the final exam. With no presentation of such documentation a grade of zero will be entered for the missed quiz or exam. If you miss the final exam then it is your responsibility to complete the required paperwork for deferred standing during the first week of January. A make-up final exam for students with deferred standing will be given on the Monday of Reading Week. Any student who receive defered standing after that date will have to write the final exam with the student of a later course such as the Winter Math 1310 final exam given in April.

IMPORTANT DATES:

Sept 23: the last day to enrol without my permission.

Oct 6: the last day to enrol with my permission.

Nov 10: the last day to drop the course without receiving a grade.
