My lectures tend to follow these notes, however, sometimes I go deeper than classtime affords us time. Also, I do write these notes with an exceptional student in mind. I believe we are called to excellence not mediocrity. Of course, not everybody needs to understand the entirety of my notes. I just want you to do your best. Notice that I have only been able to put the first 40% or so of the notes into the LaTeX format. The last 60% are in my older, inferior, Word-based format (the whole 2nd-ed. of my notes is posted further down, and if you are really really curious you can find the first edition somewhere on this website...).

- Chapter 9: Integration Techniques
- Chapter 10: Numerical Techniques

- Chapter 12: Curves
- Chapter 13: Calculus of Parametrized Curves
- Chapter 14: Further Application of Integral Calculus
- Chapter 15: Geometry and Coordinates
- Chapter 16: Introduction to Differential Equations
- Chapter 17: Sequences and Series
- Chapter 18: Basics of Power Series
- Chapter 19: Taylor Series and Techniques

Posted below are problems and some solutions to problems I assigned in previous semesters. These were originally assigned in the Spring 2011 Semester:

- Problem Set 1:

on integration techniques and its solution - Problem Set 2:

on parametric geometry, polar coordinates and applications and its solution - Problem Set 3:

on differential equations and convergence theory and its solution - Problem Set 4:

on power series and applications and its solution - Problem Set 5:

on trouble spots and the missing parts plus the selected select topic and its solution

The problems below were taken from Stewart's Calculus. The qualifier "prereq" means that I don't plan a specific lecture devoted to this topic. It is probably spread over many other lectures. I include these solutions specifically to help those of you who had a lackluster preparation before this course. OK, I hope the reason these solutions are posted here is clear enough.

These give you some idea of the difficulty of the course. Also, while tests change from semester to semester these show you certain things you might expect.

- Solution to Test 1 (posted now, the solution for 1b is only correct if you make all the limits right limits)
- Solution to Test 2
- Solution to Test 3
- Solution to Test 4

We start with Chapter 9 in calculus II. You do not need to print these. These are not the notes for this semester.

- Power Series, Interval of Convergence and Geometric Series Techniques
- geometric series trick chart my graphical representation of how to use the geometric series indirectly. This trick should be combined with some common sense to solve problems in section 8.6. Of course some problems are just plain-old geometric series, so try that first when attacking 8.6 questions.
- a selection of homework problems worked I work out a few of your homework problems. I deal with the endpoints for an example or two, but then focus on the main part which is the open interval of convergence. That just requires careful application of the ratio test. The endpoints require more thought sometimes.
- a selection of homework problems worked mostly even numbered problems, I hope these help you understand how to get started. These sort of problems reflect what I think is the most important element of power series. This is the part that you can use in other courses ( convergence and divergence is fine and all but if you can't calculate the power series representation of a function then the question of where it converges seems somewhat pointless ). Also the fact we can integrate almost anything with power series is just fantastic.
