Eligibility. You must have the course prerequisites listed below.
It is the student's responsibility to check and prove eligibility.
If in doubt, please contact the instructor.
You must have passed MAC 2311 (Calculus I) with a grade of C- or
better or have satisfactorily completed at least four hours of
equivalent calculus courses.

Course Content. Chapters 7-11.
The material to be covered is naturally divided into three
(1) techniques of integration, using
both analytical and numerical methods; we will explore
applications of the methods learned to problems in geometry,
physics, and economics;
(2) an introductory study of series, a concept that may be new
to most students of Calculus II; the discussion will be
combined with the investigation of several applications;
(3) an introduction to differential equations, from both analytical
and graphical viewpoints; we will study a rich variety of
problems modeled by differential equations, including a detailed
investigation of the logistic model of population growth.
This course is the second part of the calculus sequence.
In Calculus I, you were introduced to the three fundamental
notions upon which calculus is built: limits, derivatives
and integrals. Our main objectives this semester are:
(1) to deepen the comprehension of these notions through
conceptual discussions and the investigation of many
problems and applications;
(2) to master more advanced methods and techniques, and apply
them to the solution of a variety of problems.
Grading. There will be four unit tests and a cumulative final exam. There
will also be homework and short quizzes.
Numerical course grades will be determined by (T1+T2+T3+T4 + 2E)/6
where T1..T4 are the unit tests grades, and E = final exam grade.
Let P = grade for homework+quizzes.
If P is higher than the lowest unit test grade (T1, T2, T3, or T4)
then you can replace this unit test grade by P.
Letter grades will be based on numerical grades as follows:
A = 92-100, A- = 90-91.9, B+ = 88-89.9, B = 82-87.9, B- = 80-81.9, C+ =
78-79.9, C = 72-77.9, C- = 70-71.9, D+ = 68-69.9, D = 60-67.9, F = 0-59.9.
A grade of I will not be given to avoid a D or an F, or to provide
additional study time.
Exam Policy. No makeup exams will be given. An absence from a quiz
or a unit test may be excused if the student presents sufficient evidence,
at least one day before the test, of extenuating circumstances.
If a test absence is excused, the final exam grade will be used in its
Honor Code. The Academic Honor System at The Florida State
University is based on the premise that each student has the
responsibility 1) to uphold the highest standards of academic
integrity in the student's own work, 2) to refuse to tolerate
violations of academic integrity in the University community, and
3) to foster a high sense of integrity and social responsibility
on the part of the University community. A copy of the University
Academic Honor Code can be found in the current Student Handbook
and you are bound by it in all your academic work.
American Disabilities Act. Students with disabilities needing
academic accommodations should register with and provide documentation
to the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC), and bring a letter
from the SDRC to the instructor indicating their needs.This should
be done within the first week of class.
