MAT 2420 - Calculus II for Science and Engineering
4 credit hours
MAT 2420 is integral calculus with applications to polar coordinates and infinite series. This is the second course in the three semester sequence of university level calculus. Topics include: techniques of integration, polar coordinates and polar graphs, parametric equations and their associated graphs, theory of convergence of infinite series, Taylor Polynomials and Taylor Series. There will be usage of MATLAB software. Replaces MAT 242.
Prerequisite: A “C” or higher in MAT 2410 [formerly MAT 241].

Upon successful completion of the course, each student should be able to:
1. Integrate elementary functions such as polynomials, rational functions, trigonometric functions and their inverses, logarithmic and exponential functions.
2. Use definite integrals to solve applications problems such as areas, volumes, work and averages.
3. Use infinite sequences and series, power series, Taylor polynomials and Taylor series.
