Math 122 Calculus III
Prof. D. Joyce, BP 322, 793-7421
Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
Calculus is essential for majors in biology, chemistry, computer science,
mathematics, physics, and environmental science and policy. Part I includes
functions, limits, continuity, differentiation of algebraic and trigonometric
functions, mean value theorem, and various applications. Part II includes;
Riemann sums and integrals, techniques and applications of integration improper
integrals, transcendental functions; (logarithms, exponential functions, and
inverse trigonometric functions). Part III includes further topics from calculus
proper (sequences, series, polar coordinates) and introduces linear algebra
(vectors, matrices, and linear systems). Though not all results are derived
rigorously, care is taken to distinguish intuitive arguments from rigorous
proofs. Math 120, 121, and 122 each fulfill the Formal Analysis requirement.
Prerequisite for Math 120: appropriate score on the mathematics
placement test, or appropriate grade in Math 119.
Prerequisite for Math 121: Math 120, or Math 124, or AP credit in Calculus.
Prerequisite for Math 122: Math 121.
/ Offered every fall (120, 122) and spring (121).

There will be quizzes, two midterms, and a final exam.
Homework and Quizzes. I will assign daily practice exercises to help you master the concepts discussed in class. Although the exercises will not be collected regularly, you are expected keep up to date on the problems. Math is not a spectator sport. You learn by doing; therefore, it is only to your advantage to keep abreast of the current topics under discussion. Periodically I will assign a few specific exercises to be collected and graded, and those assignments are due in class on the assigned day; I won't accept late assignments. I'll give short 15–20 minute quizzes periodically throughout the semester.
Exams are in class, closed book, and closed notebook, but you may use one sheet of notes and a calculator. If you have a legitimate, documented excuse for missing an exam, contact me (before the scheduled time if at all possible) to reschedule the exam (at my convenience).
The final exam will be a two-hour, comprehensive exam, given during the final exam period. All students will be required to take the final exam at that time. Therefore do not make plans to leave campus before the final exam.
The course grade is computed as follows
