Introductory Calculus II with Applications


Topics include sequences and series, the definition of the integral and its uses, Taylor and Fourier Series, differential equations and mathematical models. It also includes labs and applications to biology, chemistry and physics, some of which appear in Math 112L. This course will meet for three lectures and one lab each week. Weekly labs will involve explorations of applications, techniques, and theory. Not open to students who have taken Mathematics 105L, 106L, 111L, 112L, or 122. One course. 

*** Fall 2020:  Due to the COVID situation, Math 112L will not be offered this term.  All students planning to take a calc 2 course this term should register for Math 122L, which will be adapted to accommodate students coming from Math 106L and Math 111L.

Additional Notes

This course is not open to students who have taken a calculus course at Duke. Students who have taken Math 106L or Math 111L at Duke should enroll in Math 112L rather than this course. The red "R" that appears beside this course listing in ACES is there for the 106L/111L restriction only, and it should have no effect on first-year students enrolling in their first math course at Duke.
