Course-level student learning outcomesDiscipline-level learning outcomesAssessment methods

Evaluate definite, indefinite, and improper integrals by using basic integration rules, integration by parts, trigonometric integrals, trigonometric substitution, partial fractions, and integration tables.

Construct Maclaurin and Taylor polynomials and bound the error in using such a polynomial to approximate a function.

Test for convergence of an infinite series using the comparison, limit comparison, ratio, root, divergence, alternating series, and integral tests, and use the sequence of partial sums in determining convergence.

Construct a power series representation for a function, and evaluate where it converges.

Identify conics by their equations and/or properties, use polar coordinates and polar graphs, and write parametric equations for plane curves.

Identify points in space, calculate the distance between points, find the equation, center, and radius of a sphere, and perform basic operations of vectors in the plane and in space.
