B CUSP 125
Focuses on the historical emergence of modern calculus, the Fundamental Theorem, area, volume, and area length calculations, properties and applications of the integral, infinite series, Taylor and Fourier expansions, and the Weierstrass definition of limit. Emphasizes problem-solving and mathematical thinking. Prerequisite: minimum grade of 2.0 in B CUSP 124, score of 3 on AP MAB or AP MBC exams. Offered: AWSp.
This course is the second quarter in the calculus sequence and develops the concept of integration. We will begin with the area problem and move on to several other applications. Along the way, we will learn a handful of basic integration techniques, including substitution, integration by parts, and trigonometric substitution. Of central importance will be our study of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
