This is the second course in calculus, intended for students who have already completed a
Calculus I course in differential and integral calculus and need to extend their skills in this
By the end of this course, students should be able to:
- Distinguish between the indefinite integral and the definite integral.
- Define the definite integral as a limit of Riemann sums and interpret it as area.
- Explain the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, showing how differentiation and integration are
- Evaluate an integral by the method of substitution.
- Use integrals to calculate areas between curves, volumes, work, and average value of a
- Evaluate integrals, using the techniques of integration by parts, using trigonometric
identities and trigonometric substitution, and using partial fractions.
- Use the Midpoint Rule, Simpson's Rule, and the Trapezoidal Rule to find the approximate
value of certain definite integrals.
- Evaluate the two types of improper integrals.
- Solve separable first-order differential equations.
- Use integrals to find arc length and area of a surface of revolution.
- Use integrals in applications to economics and biology.
- Determine whether or not a sequence of real numbers converges.
- Test a series for convergence or divergence, using the integral, ratio, root, and comparison
- Test an alternating series for absolute convergence, conditional convergence, or
- Determine the radius and interval of convergence of a power series.
- Unit 1: Integrals
- Unit 2: Applications of Integration
