**Liberal Education Category**

Category Satisfied: CATEGORY TWO: Math, Logic and Critical Thinking

Liberal Education Goals and Objectives: By the end of the term, the
successful student will understand the important role that calculus plays in
modeling real-world phenomena and how to apply calculus to problems in
his/her discipline. Business, economics, biology, geology, chemistry,
physics, engineering and numerous other disciplines make heavy use of
calculus. Whenever numerical quantities change with respect to time or with
respect to other variables, calculus is probably involved. The incredible
success of the physical sciences and engineering in today's world is largely
due to "the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics," and
calculus plays a major role in that effectiveness! The biological social and
managerial scientists today also make tremendous use of calculus to solve
their problems.

**Course Description**:

This course covers the second part of a standard introduction to calculus. It
in includes discussion of parametric equations and polar coordinates,
applications of integrals, series, and partial derivatives.
