## Preface Introduction

ΒΆThis course is designed for students specializing in business or the social sciences. Topics include integration; a variety of techniques of integration; applications of integration such as average value, area, volume using Disk and Shell Methods, surplus in consumption and production, continuous money flow, double and triple integration, and probability; differential equations; and sequences and series leading up to Taylor's Theorem.

The following *Recommendations for Success in Mathematics* are excerpts taken from the same named document published by Petra Menz in order to provide strategies grouped into categories to all students who are thinking about their well-being, learning, and goals, and who want to be successful academically.

*How to Take Lecture Notes:*

Listen to the Instructor, who

explains the concepts;

draws connections;

demonstrates examples;

emphasizes material.

Copy the presented lecture material

by arriving to the lecture prepared;

using telegraphic writing, i.e. packing as much information into the smallest possible number of words/ symbols (do you really need to copy all the algebraic/manipulative steps?).

Mark up your notes immediately while listening and copying using a system such as offered here:

! pay attention (possible exam material)

? confusing (read course notes or visit ACW )

-> practice (using course notes and online assignments)

underline/highlight key concepts
