This is the second part of our application-oriented introduction to calculus with examples chosen from diverse fields. We shall cover most of Chapters 7 through 11; 12.7 and 13.3 of the textbook. TI-83/84 and other calculators may be used for your own work outside the classroom. However, their use will not be permitted during tests and examinations.

Quizzes will be given from time to time.

Homework using "MYMATHLAB": Please note that you will want theMyMathLab Supplement that comes packaged with the textbook. Following each section covered, you must log on to the MyMathLab system and complete a companion homework assignment that follows the material covered in class. You will be given several attempts to answer each question, and you can utilize the book and all of the aids offered within the system to help solve the problems.. The COURSE ID for the section is bentil31284. To Register and use MyMathLab click on Math 20A for Instructions. For those who have access codes from Math 19, please check the FAQ on  Enrolling in Another/Subsequent MyMathLab Course on how to enroll in another section. Please stick to the deadlines for completing each assignment.  The average of the course compass assignments will be found at the end of the semester. Please work consistently.

Course Expectation & Conduct: The purpose of our class meetings is to help you to obtain the core material that will allow you to learn through your own work outside the classroom. Therefore, an essential part of your {positive} learning process is to look for additional information from the library and other sources (namely, my office hours and Math Help Sessions).

All rules including student class conduct, cheating, attendance (partial credit will be given for attendance), etc. will be handled as required by the student code of conduct currently in effect. Should you miss a quiz or test due to illness or an emergency, you will be required to provide a note (eg. from your Dean's Office) in order to be allowed to make-up on the tests and quizzes.

Students with Special Needs: Students with documented learning disabilities are entitled by law to certain “reasonable accommodations.” If you have a documented reason for special accommodations, you must provide written evidence of this as soon as possible from the appropriate office. No accommodations can or will be given without the documentation. Each time special accommodations are requested, the request must be submitted, in writing, at least one week before the event.

Academic Integrity: Violations of the Code of Academic Integrity are taken very seriously.  For more information and to read the code of Academic Integrity, visit the Center for Student Ethics and Standards website at
