Introduction to Single-Variable Calculus II University of Tsukuba
This course along with "Introduction to Single- Variable Calculus I" and “Advanced Calculus” introduces the basic tools of calculus and develops their technical competence. The primary goal of this course is to understand the concepts and to build up a working ability of various mathematical manipulations such as parametric equations, polar coordinates, infinite sequences and series. This is efficiently achieved by visualization, numerical and graphical experimentations and students are required to be acquainted with Mathematica (or similar ones) during the course for working exercises and homework problems. The present course provides a basic core and practical knowledge required for many courses in both natural and social sciences.
1. The students are able to evaluate areas and volumes of two- and three-dimensional objects having revolution symmetry. 2. The students are able to calculate arc lengths by using parametric equations. 3. The students are able to understand and describe the conic sections with the cartesian and polar coordinates. 4. The students are able to understand the convergence of infinite sequences and series and evaluate those limits.
Related to 1. Mathematical logic and calculation skills.
* The students have taken "Introduction to Single- Variable Calculus I" or a similar level of Math courses. * "Mathematica" is used to solve numerical problems. You are requested to install "Mathematica" in your own PC by the first lecture. * Those who already earned the credit of Calculus I (FJ20104) are not allowed to earn the credit of this course.
