Course Description: MAT 193, Calculus II, covers Chapters 6-9 from the textbook: Techniques and applications of integration, Polar coordinates, Sequences and series, power series, Taylor series.


Text: James Stewart, Essential Calculus, Second Edition, Brooks/Cole, 2013.


Objectives: After completing MAT 193 the student should be able to:


Prerequisites: MAT 191 or equivalent with a grade of "C" or better.



Grades: Grades will be based on three in‑class 80-minutes examinations (60% total), a comprehensive final examination (25%), and quizzes, homework, attendance and other assignments (15%) for the remainder.

The exact grading system for your section is the following:

Each of the three 80-minutes exams will be graded  on a 100 scale, then the sum of the scores is divided by 5 and denoted by E.

Homework will be due every Monday, and each homework is worth 5 points. No late homework will be accepted. The average of all homework scores is denoted by H.

5 to 10 minutes quizzes will be given in principle every Monday, and will be graded on a scale from 1 to 5. The average of the quizzes scores is denoted by Q.

There are also 5 points awarded for attendance and class participation. This portion of the grade is denoted by A.

The final exam will be graded out of a maximum possible 200, then the score is divided by 8 and denoted by F. 

To determine your final grade,  compute E+H+Q+A+F. The maximum is 100, and the grade will be given by the rule:

         A: 93‑100;      A‑: 90‑92;      B+: 87‑89;      B: 83‑86;   B‑: 80‑82

        C+: 77‑79;      C: 73‑76;        C‑: 70‑72;      D+: 67‑69;   D: 60‑66;     F: Less than 60.


WebWorKMore practice problems are available in WebWork: go to  and log in using as user name the part before the “@” in the email address that you have given to, and your student ID as password (you can change the password after the first log in). Use Set0 to learn how to input your answers. Then try to do more problems after you complete each homework assignment. You should download and print one set, work on the problems, then input your answers. After you try each problem at least once you have the option to "show me other" similar problems. You can also view the correct answer and the solution (if available) in order to understand what you did wrong. You can also use "email instructor" to ask for help. Help for these problems will be available by email or during office hours.


Makeups: No makeup examinations or quizzes will be given. If you must miss an examination for a legitimate reason, discuss this, in advance, with me, and I may then substitute the relevant score from your final examination for the missing grade.


Accomodations for Students with Disabilities: Cal State Dominguez Hills adheres to all applicable federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and guidelines with respect to providing reasonable accommodations for students with temporary and permanent disabilities. If you have a disability that may adversely affect your work in this class, I encourage you to register with Disabled Student Services (DSS) and to talk with me about how I can best help you. All disclosures of disabilities will be kept strictly confidential. Please note: no accommodation may be made until you register with the DSS in WH D180. For information call (310) 243-3660 or to use telecommunications Device for the Deaf, call (310) 243-2028.


Academic Integrity: The mathematics department does not tolerate cheating. Students who have questions or concerns about academic integrity should ask their professors or the counselors in the Student Development Office, or refer to the University Catalog for more information. (Look in the index under "academic integrity".)


Technology: Symbolic calculators, such as TI-89, TI-92 or TI Nspire CAS are not acceptable for this course.


Exam rules: Students must leave their CSUDH student ID on their desk for the duration of the exam. Cell phones, iPhones, iPods, or PDAs of any kind, as well as headphones, may not be used at all during a test. Students are discouraged from leaving the exam room during the period of the exam. Restroom breaks must be kept under five minutes and are limited to one/exam. You will be penalized 5 points if you are gone more than five minutes.  No more than one student can be out of the room at any given time during an exam. If a student finds it necessary to leave the room under these circumstances, they are not permitted to access computer terminals, smoke, read notes/books, or talk with others. If a student is found engaging in this behavior, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.  Whenever a student leaves the room, they must turn their exam upside down on their desk. All book bags or similar items will be deposited in the front of the class for the duration of the test.
