MATH 227: Calculus II
FALL 1999

Calculus 227 is the second four credit hour course in the calculus sequence taught at San Francisco State University. The textbook for the course is Calculus: Early Transcendentals by James Stewart. We shall cover chapters 5-10.

The course homepage is located at "http://sfsu.bu.edu/goetz/Teaching/math227f99/".  This page contains the many links related to the lectures.

The central object of the study in calculus is the concept of a function. Functions are used to describe the real world around us. Calculus introduces two fundamental concepts which enable us to describe and investigate functions. These are: the derivative and the integral. The derivative describes the behavior of a function at a particular time. The integral carries information about the history of a function. We begin our course  by studying the integral. We then investigate various applications of integrals. We shall conclude the course with a study of sequences and series.
