Lecture Schedule: Here is a plan of the course (may be altered for pedagogical reasons as the course develops).

Ch. 5: Applications of Integration
2.5 weeks
Ch. 6: Inverse Functions
2.5 weeks
Ch. 7: Techniques of Integration
3 weeks
Ch. 8: Further Applications of Integration
1.5 weeks

Course Description: Same topics as Math 1952 treated rigorously and conceptually. Topics of study will include differentiation and integration of functions of one variable especially focusing on the theory, techniques and applications of integration.

Student Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of this course, a student should:
1. understand the indefinite integral of a function, including its connection to the derivative.
2. know the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and understand how it connects definite and indefinite integrals.
3. be able to integrate functions via substitution, integration by parts, trigonometric substitutions, and partial functions.
4. be able to use definite integrals to solve various problems, such as finding arc lengths, areas, and volumes.

Grading: Your final grade for the course will be determined based on a numerical weighted average calculated as follows: Homework 16% Quizzes 14% Midterm 30% Final Exam 40%. This average percentage will then be converted into a final letter grade based partially on how other students perform this quarter, and partially on typical percentage grades from previous quarters of the course.

Homework: Homework will be assigned about once a week. They will be posted and collected (on Mondays) using WebAssign, an online tool for problem dissemination. To get started, go to and create an account. To do this, go to the right-hand side of the page, and look for a link that says "Enter Class Key." (This is to the left of the words "Log in.") Your class key for our section is du 0356 8727. With this, you should be able to create an account with your own username and password and start learning about the system. The eight highest homework scores will contribute to 16% of your final grade.

Quizzes: You will have quizzes during each week of class that we do not have an upcoming exam. They will be roughly 15-20 minutes long and will be given in class on Fridays. Makeup quizzes will only be given in the case of a documented absence. The seven highest quiz scores will contribute to 14% of your final grade.

Exams: A midterm is tentatively scheduled during class time on Tuesday, February 2. The final exam is scheduled on Friday, March 11 at 12:00pm  1:50pm in our usual classroom. Makeup exams will only be offered in the event of extreme circumstances. If you think you have a problem which will force you to miss an exam, come talk to me as soon as possible.

Calculator: You may use a simple scientific calculator for all exams and quizzes. Graphing or programmable calculators are not allowed as well as calculators that can perform any kind of calculus or symbolic operations. Use of a non-approved calculator will be considered a violation of DU's honor code. If you have any questions about your calculator please see me.

Help: Additional handouts will be distributed throughout the quarter. Students are also encouraged to ask for individualized help from the instructor or the TA at any time. Make use of the Math Center in the Anderson Academic Commons too. Detailed information about the Math Center can be found here:

Students with Disabilities: If you qualify for academic accommodations because of a disability or medical issue, please submit a faculty letter to me from Disability Services Program (DSP) in a timely manner so that your needs may be addressed. DSP determines accommodations based on documented disabilities/medical issues. DSP is located on the 4th floor of Ruffatto Hall, 1999 E Evans Ave, 303-871-2278. Information is also available online at; see the Handbook for Students with Disabilities.

Honor Code: Follow the Honor Code in all activities related to this course. Incidents of academic misconduct will be reported to and investigated by the Office of Student Conduct.

Religious Accommodations: University policy grants students excused absences from class or other organized activities for observance of religious holy days, unless the accommodation would create an undue hardship. Faculty are asked to be responsive to requests when students contact them in advance to request such an excused absence. Students are responsible for completing assignments given during their absence, but should be given an opportunity to make up work missed because of religious observance. Once a student has registered for a class, the student is expected to examine the course syllabus for potential conflicts with holy days and to notify the instructor by the end of the first week of classes of any conflicts that may require an absence (including any required additional preparation/travel time). The student is also expected to remind the faculty member in advance of the missed class, and to make arrangements in advance (with the faculty member) to make up any missed work or in-class material within a reasonable amount of time.
