MATH 141 : Calculus II

Credits: 4

Course Description: Continuation of MATH 140. Topics include transcendental functions, techniques of integration, applications of the integral, improper integrals, l'Hospital's rule, sequences, and series.

Pre-Requisites: MATH 140 with grade of C- or better or MATH 145 with grade of C- or better.

Comments: Because MATH 141 is the second part of a three-semester calculus sequence, it should be taken as soon as possible after MATH 140.
