INSTRUCTOR: K. Q. Lan, Office: S514 Ross Building, tel: 736-2100 ext 33956,

e-mail: kunquan@mathstat.yorku.ca

OFFICE HOURS MWF 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 MWF 8:30-9:20 AM, in Curtis Lecture Hall E.

TEXT S. O. Kochman, Calculus: Concept, Applications and Theory, Part II, 2000 EDITION, 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.

This course kit for Math 1310 also has a Student Solution Manual, which is recommended (but not required) and should be available before the start of the term.

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, advice, homework problems, the course schedule as well as solutions to quizzes and tests. The address of this web page is:

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 all 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 Friday at 9:00am 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 Monday.

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 marks of your final exam will be added to the missed quiz or in-class 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 before the make-up final exam. A make-up final exam for students with deferred standing will be given  in June. Any students who receive defered standing after that date will have to write the final exam with the students of a later course such as the Summer or Fall Math 1310 final exam.

IMPORTANT DATES:

March 9: the last day to enrol without my permission.

March 23: the last day to enrol with my permission.

April 12 : the last day to drop the course without receiving a grade.
