This document contains information specific to this class and is particularly useful in the first week of the term. It supplements the main SYLLABUS for Keely's Mathematics Online Courses which contains key info and policies.
Course name Calculus II, Course number MATH& 152, section D01D, item #3467,
5 credits Modality: This is a fully online courses conducted asynchronously in Canvas and WebAssign. This is NOT a "remote learning" format, thus has no real-time class meetings (i.e. NO Zoom). FAQ - What's the difference between online and remote class? What does "asynchronous" mean? To qualify for Calculus II you must have passed Calculus I (Clark's Math& 151) with a grade of at least "C" or qualifying score on the placement test. Calculus I-II-III-IV is the four-term sequence of Calculus for Engineering and the Sciences. The goal of these courses is not only to learn calculus but also to improve your critical thinking and problem solving abilities. These are challenging technical courses intended for those in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) majors. The quantitative skills requirement [Q] of the general education distribution is met by any one of these courses.
The Mathematics Department has identified the following Course Level Outcomes for which you should be proficient upon successful completion of the course. Calculus I Outcomes
Calculus II Outcomes
How will you be assessed on these outcomes? See Mathematics Online Syllabus: Outcomes Assessment.
WebAssign Software and e-Textbook WebAssign access with included e-textbook is REQUIRED. Physical textbook is OPTIONAL. What is WebAssign (WA): WebAssign access is required to access the assignments and tests. WA is a digital learning platform provided by the textbook publisher, Cengage. In WA you can read the e-textbook, watch video tutorials, work interactive practice problems, complete assignments, and take tests. The complete textbook is included as an online e-textbook inside WA and also available through Cengage's MindTap app.
If you already have an active Cengage "Unlimited" subscription to this title/edition, then there is nothing to buy. If you bought the 4-month subscription for MATH& 151, that is all you need for MATH& 152. Simply click on a link to a WA assignment in our Canvas class to link your Cengage account with the Stewart e-textbook and WA materials for 152. If you do NOT already have an active Cengage "Unlimited" subscription use free temporary access to WA: Cengage provides full free "temporary access" to the WA materials and e-textbook for at least the first week of class. Registration directions are provided in class. Ultimately you will need to purchase access, but it is wise to take advantage of the free access first. Registering in WebAssign: You *must* register for WA by clicking on a link to a WA assignment in our Canvas classroom. You do not need a "class key", in fact one won't work because WA is synced with Canvas. Using a different textbook or older edition for study: All standard “early transcendental” Calculus-for-STEM textbooks cover about the same material. So if you have a textbook that you connect well with, certainly use it to study from. Of course, you are still required to have WA access since the assignments and tests are conducted there. Tutorial Videos: Videos are provided by Cengage linked directly in the e-textbook. Additional videos may be provided in class or linked in the supplementary resources portion of the professor's Lesson Notes. Sources for other recommended videos are listed at FAQs: Tutorial video sites. Note: please AVOID Khan Academy and do not recommend it in discussion posts. |
