MATH 118 – Calculus II, Spring 2011 General course information

Getting Back to Work Welcome back to calculus. We urge you to work hard this term. MATH 118 will pick up where MATH 116 (or 117) left off and will discuss integration, differential equations, and the concept of infinite summations as well polar equations. Prerequisites Prerequisite for the course is a grade of at least 50% in MATH 116, or equivalent standing. Students who obtained between 50% and 60% in Math 116 may find the course more challenging since, as they progress through the subject material, they will simultaneously be honing the math skills developed in Calculus I.
