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.

Text : Calculus, 8E Early Transcendentals, James Stewart, 2016.
