MATH& 152 Calculus II • 5 Cr.


Continues the study of integration, emphasizing applications and special techniques. Students work with algebraic and transcendental functions. Fulfills the quantitative or symbolic reasoning course requirement at BC. Prerequisite: Placement by assessment, or MATH& 151 with a C or better.


After completing this class, students should be able to:

  • Explain what a definite integral represents both geometrically and formally.
  • Model and use the ideas of integration to solve applied problems.
  • Apply the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to evaluate definite integrals.
  • Select and apply integration techniques to calculate antiderivatives of functions.
  • Model position/velocity/acceleration and exponential growth/decay problems with differential equations and to solve those differential equations.
  • Implement numerical methods to approximate the values of definite integrals.
