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

Math 152 (Calculus II for Math and Physical Sciences) is a continuation of Math 151, and is part of the first year calculus sequence at Rutgers University, New Brunswick. Math 152 covers the integral calculus and its applications, the theory of infinite series and power series, parametric curves, polar coordinates, and complex numbers.

Most sections of Math 152 have three class meetings per week: two lectures and one workshop. The lecture is where new material is covered by the course lecturer. The workshop is a smaller class meeting with a Teaching Assistant (TA), where students work in-depth on problems in groups, and will be asked to write up one or more of the problems that they have worked on. Also, a quiz will be given during most workshop sessions.

The final exam for all sections will be on Monday, December 16, 4:00-7:00pm. The location will be announced by your lecturer late in the semester.
