Student Learning Outcomes:

On completing this course, the student will be able to:

1. use a divide-and-conquer strategy to formulate problems in terms of definite integrals;
2. evaluate definite integrals numerically and formally, by computer and by hand;
3. use and give an intuitive explanation of both parts of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus;
4. understand and use the idea of approximating functions with Taylor polynomials;
5. understand, compute, and use improper integrals in the contexts of -series and continuous probability distributions;
6. determine whether or not an infinite series converges;
7. use the skills listed above to solve simple problems involving probability;
8. use the computer to solve problems in integral calculus; and
9. write and talk about mathematics.
