01:640:152 - Calculus II for the Mathematical and Physical Sciences

Math 151–152 is the introductory year course in the calculus sequence in New Brunswick for majors in the mathematical sciences, the physical sciences, and engineering.

  • The first semester, Math 151 or 153, presents the differential calculus of the elementary functions of a single real variable: the rational, trigonometric and exponential functions and their inverses; various applications via the Mean Value Theorem; and an introduction to the integral calculus.
  • The second semester, Math 152, continues the study of the integral calculus, with applications, and covers the theory of infinite series and power series, touching on differential equations and a few other topics as well.

Transitioning from Math 135 to Math 152:

Students who intend to go directly from Math 135 to Math 152 will need to fill in some gaps through self-study.
The details are in the document: Transferring From 135 to 152
