MATH 126 - Spring 2017

Math 126 prepares students for math, science, and engineering majors. Anyone considering going beyond Calculus II should take this sequence. The course focuses on techniques of integration, applications of integration, infinite sequences and series, polar coordinates, vector geometry, and uses exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions.   

Math 126 is taught as a Lecture-Lab course. Students attend a large lecture (125-250 students) three times per week and a small laboratory section (25-33 students) twice per week. Lectures record attendance and participation through the iClicker Response System. Laboratory sections are taught by mathematics graduate teaching assistants who also hold office and help room hours. All students take the same midterm and final exams.

Prerequisites: 
Math 125, Math 145, or Math 116 with a grade of C- or better. Students who have completed Math 116 earn only 2 additional credits or Math 126.

Calculators and Midterm/Final Exams:   Only basic or scientific calculators will be permitted while taking exams. Calculators must not be able to perform calculus calculations (limits, derivatives, integrals, series) and must have no graphic capabilities. Recommended calculator:   TI-30X IIS
