Mathematics (MATH)

MATH 141H (GQ) Honors Calculus with Analytic Geometry II (4) Honors course in derivatives, integrals, applications; sequences and series; analytic geometry; polar coordinates. Students may take only one course for credit from MATH 141, 141B, and 141H.

MATH 141H Honors Calculus with Analytic Geometry II (4)

(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.

This course is the second in a sequence of three calculus courses designed for students in engineering, science, and related fields. Topics include inverse functions of exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions; indeterminate forms and L'Hopital's rule; various techniques of integration, including integration by parts, trigonometric integrals, trigonometric substitution, and partial fractions; improper integration; infinite sequences and series, tests for convergence and divergence of infinite series, including the integral test, comparison tests, ratio test, root test; power series, Taylor and Maclaurin Series; parametric equations and polar coordinates.

The typical delivery format for the course is four 50-minute lectures per week, with typical assessment tools including examinations, quizzes, homework, and writing assignments.

In contrast to the non-honors version of this course, the honors version is typically more theoretical and will often include more sophisticated problems. Moreover, certain topics are often discussed in more depth and are sometimes expanded to include applications which are not visited in the non-honors version of the course.
