Student Learning Outcomes:

·         State-mandated Outcomes:  Upon successful completion of this course, students will:

1.      Use the concepts of definite integrals to solve problems involving area, volume, work, and other physical applications.  (Critical Thinking and Communication Skills)

2.      Use substitution, integration by parts, trigonometric substitution, partial fractions, and tables of anti-derivatives to evaluate definite and indefinite integrals.

3.      Define an improper integral.

4.      Apply the concepts of limits, convergence, and divergence to evaluate some classes of improper integrals.

5.      Determine convergence or divergence of sequences and series.  (Critical Thinking)

6.      Use Taylor and MacLaurin series to represent functions.

7.      Use Taylor or MacLaurin series to integrate functions not integrable by conventional methods.

8.      Use the concept of polar coordinates to find areas, lengths of curves, and representations of conic sections.
