# MAT 126: Calculus B

Fall 2005

### Department of Mathematics

Stony Brook University

This course is the second semester of the three-semester calculus
sequence
MAT 125, 126 and 127. We will study integration. We will often use the
theory of differentiation, which was covered in MAT 125, and also
trigonometry.

**Textbook**:

*Calculus: Concepts and Contexts. Single Variable*,

Second Edition,

by James Stewart, Brooks/Cole Publishing, 2001.

Check the syllabus to determine which sections will be covered each
week, and come to class having read those sections. Reading the
textbook will greatly
increase your comprehension of the lectures and enable you to ask
useful questions
in class. Furthermore, the lecturers and recitation instructors will
not always be
able to cover all of the subject material for which you will be
responsible. Note that mathematical texts are not meant to be read like
novels: very often you will come across passages that must be read
several times before they make sense to you.
