Spring 2017: MTH 143



Course description


MTH 143 is a continuation of MTH 142. This course introduces the techniques of the calculus with parametric curves and polar coordinates. Sequences and series are covered extensively. Goals of this course include:

Topics covered

MTH 143 begins with the study of sequences and series. A variety of tests for convergence with be introduced including the comparison tests, the integral test, the alternating series test, and the ratio and root tests. Representing functions as power series will be covered along with a treatment of Taylor and Maclaurin series. The calculus of parametric and polar curves will be introduced and developed.
