Welcome to Calculus II and congratulations for being here as
this is not easy. First, Calculus can be intimidating, and second, Cal Poly is a
high-ranked University with strict entrance requirements. I am committed to ** help
you** learn the material, and to hopefully convince you that spending a
significant amount of time in Calculus is worth it, even if you are not a Math
major. My degrees are in Electrical Engineering: PhD from University of
Florida, MS from Syracuse University, and BS from Wichita State.

** Instructor**:
Al Jiménez, B25, #209, ajjimene@calpoly.edu, 756-1660, http://www.calpoly.edu/~ajjimene/

** Office Hours: **MTRF

** Required Text:** James Stewart, Calculus,
6th edition, Thomson Brooks/Cole, 2008. We will
cover Section 5.5 through Section 9.4, Sections 10.1 through Section 10.4

** Prerequisite: **Math
141 or equivalent

** Learning Objectives:** a)
Differentiate and integrate elementary transcendental functions; b) understand
some of the applications of integration, including areas, volumes, work, arc
length, surface area, and center of mass; c) know how to integrate combinations
of elementary functions with accuracy and confidence.

** Guidelines
for Success: **It is very unlikely that simply attending class and
watching the lectures can meet learning objectives, and unlikely to earn a good
grade. First, attend class and participate actively: work lecture problems
along with instructor, catch mistakes on the board, take notes and ask
questions either in class, during office hours, with fellow students, or by
using the Tutoring Lab. Second, expect to spend between 8-12 hours per week
doing homework problems and preparing for quizzes and exams. Studying and doing
homework with other students in the class is beneficial, but make sure that you
contribute as much as anyone else in your group. Look at the solutions manual
only after you have tackled a problem. As you know by now, calculus requires
frequent practice solving problems to really learn, understand, and gain
insight into the material. I assure you that this will be very useful in your
future career.

** Homework
(5%) and Quizzes (20%): **Homework is assigned every day, due two
class periods from assignment, and collected randomly.

** Hour
Exams (40%):** There will be two one-hour Exams (20% each).

** Final Exam (35%): **For

** Academic Honesty: **Academic honesty is for your
benefit. Don't risk a grade of F with dishonest behavior. Here are example
don'ts:

* Don't have someone else complete your homework, or impersonate you in any way.

* Don't copy from another student homework, or during a Quiz or Exam from someone sitting nearby.

Be prepared to show ID for Quizzes and Exams.
