The topics include the integral and its applications as well as multivariable calculus. Additional topics are selected from: differential equations, Taylor series and probability distributions. This course does not satisfy mathematics major requirements.
The ideas of calculus are simple ones about accumulation and change. If you know where you are and where you've been, you can tell how fast you've been going (calculus I). If you know the interest rate on your account, your spending history, and your initial deposit you can tell how much money you have now (calculus II). Although the theories behind calculus are subtle and complex, a beginner with a good command of algebra can learn to use calculus to their advantage.
Note: MATH142 does not include trigonometric functions and so does not satisfy the major requirements for many departments in the School of Arts and Sciences.
