numerical approximation methods of integration separable differential equations improper integrals sequences and series polar coordinates and parametric equations applications of these topics are used throughout the course and will include problems in area volume arc length and exponential growth and decay estimation and approximation techniques are considered throughout the course and include methods for approximating solutions to equations methods of numerical integrations and the use of power series to approximate functions solutions of these problems will require the use of graphing calculator and/or derive software a ti-86 graphing calculator is required prerequisites c or better in eng 111 recommended or concurrent registration in eng 111 acceptable and c or better in math 190
