MAT 126: Calculus B, Lecture 1, Fall 2020

Dept of Mathematics , Stony Brook University

Returning to class after illness:

The University asks students who have been ill to contact the Student Health Center. They will tell you whatever steps you need to take before returning to campus. Their phone number is 631-632-6740. Their webpage is Student Health Services.

Student Resources in Lumen OHM :

The Lumen OHM page includes material like extra practice exercises and videos on various topics. An alternate link is given here. The course name for this page is "MAT 126 Student Resources" and the enrollment key is the same.

Peer Assisted Learning:

This is a program open to all students where fellow undergraduates that have already taken the course lead study sessions. The schedules and contact information is located in the following link: PAL schedule for MAY 123, 125, 126 The Stony Brook tutoring center website is located here. For more information about PAL, click here.

Important Note: online versus in-person:

Lecture 1 (this lecture) has online lectures but in-person recitations which are mandatory to attend.

Students seeking to be completely online must enroll in Lecture 3 of MAT 126, taught by Prof. Dang, and enroll in one of its associated recitations. If you encounter difficulty doing this on Solar, you can obtain permission to enroll from Prof. Dang or the mathematics undergraduate directior, Prof. Sutherland. The link to the MAT 126 Lecture 3 website is MAT 126.3 Webpage.

(There is no longer any Lecture 2 for MAT 126. That lecture was cancelled over the summer and Lecture 3 was not renamed.)


The university requires students to wear masks during in-person recitations. Students without masks will be asked to leave.

Electronic exam submission

Since exams are given in-person, students are not required to submit any exam work electronically. Just fill in the answers on the provided quiz or midterm papers and turn them in to the teaching assistant at the end of the exam.

However, students may submit quiz and midterm answers electronically if they wish. To do this, download and print this MAT 126 Answer Sheet, which contains 30 empty boxes for multiple choice responses (only use as many are needed, e.g., 10 for a quiz). Bring the sheet to recitation with you and fill it in as you work the exam. When the exam is over, photograph the form and email to your TA. Make sure your name and ID number are visible. The exam itself may not be photographed or kept.

Images of the answer sheets should be submitted as a PDF file; there are many apps that will convert a picture to PDF format. For Apple phones there is Genius Scan, which other students have reported works well.

Course Summary

This a second course in calculus covering methods and applications of integration; enrolled students should have already passed MAT 125 or had an appropriate score on the Mathematics Department placement exam. We will cover the definitions of definite and indefinite integrals, the fundamental theorem of calculus, methods of explicitly evaluating integrals, methods of numerically estimating integrals, applications to computing areas, volumes, arclengths and other applications, parametric equations and calculus with polar coordinates.

A description of MAT 125 and links to webpages from previous semesters can be found here . If you need to review limits and derivatives, look at Chapters 1-4 of Volume 1 of our current textbook, that can be downloaded from Open Stax Calculus Vol I A Lumen OHM course giving review problems of MAT 125 material can be found here with course ID 44639 and enrollment key 'MAT 125 review'. This is not required and is only made available in case you want to review any MAT 125 topics on your own.

Internet interuptions

Due to internet problems, online classes may occasionally be interrupted. If you lose the connection, rejoin when you can; the lectures will be recored so you can view the missed parts later. If I am cut off, give me 10-15 minutes to re-establish the connection; most interruptions are shorter than this. If I can't come back right away, I will send an email to the class when I can, and post a recording on any material we did not cover. With luck, this won't happen too often.


The textbook is Volume 2 of Calculus by Open Stax at Rice University. This is a free online textbook that can be downloaded from the link on this page .

If there is a problem with the above link, two alternatives are: Calculus, Volume 2 and here.

If you prefer smaller files, here are the individual chapters we plan to cover: Chapter 1 , Chapter 2 , Chapter 3 , Chapter 7 . Links to individual sections of the text are given below in the lecture schedule.

In-person versus online recitation sections

In order to accomodate students who cannot come to campus regularly, MAT 126 is taught in two lectures, one with in-person recitations and one with online recitations. All Lecture 1 recitations are in-person; students who can't attend these regularly should enroll in the other lecture and one of its recitations.

Lecture 2 was canceled, so the other lecture is called Lecture 3.

Lecture 3 of MAT 126 is taught by Prof. Dang ( The two MAT 126 lectures will have similar schedules and exams, and I will try to make it possible for students to view both lectures if they wish, but for grading will be important to regularly attend the lecture and recitation that you are enrolled in.

As per current university requirements for large classes, the twice-a-week lectures will be online via Zoom, but the once-a-week recitation sections led by teaching assistants (TAs), will meet in-person for Lecture 1. Midterms and weekly quizzes will be administered in recitation, so it is important to attend regularly. Times are locations are listed below, as well as contact information for the TAs.

Technical requirements

Since all lectures are presented via Zoom, all students will need a device with this software installed. Links to the Zoom lectures are provided in Blackboard.

We will use Lumen OHM for homework, so you will need a device with a web browser that can connect to the Stony Brook Blackboard site to access homework. You will also need to access your Stony Brook Google email to receive occasional emailed announcements (these will also appear in the Blackboard announcements for the course).


Grades will be based on 5 types of evaluation:

        1. Lumen OHM problems sets (20%): Lumen provides a free (to the student) Online Homework Management system that generates random variations of problems selected by the instructor and grades them automatically. You do NOT need to sign up for an Lumen OHM account; the assignments should be visible to you through Blackboard (in fact, if you access the homework from an individually set up Lumen OHM account, and not through Blackboard, your homework grades may not recorded in Blackboard correctly). We will drop the two lowest homework grades.
Assignments in Lumen OHM are automatically graded by the system, so you will see the results right away. You will be allowed multiple attempts to do each problem without a penalty, and to ask for an alternate version of the problem instead. The due dates of these will be the same for everyone in MAT 126, regardless of section, usually on Friday of the week following the week when the relevant material is presented in lecture (but you are encouraged to do it earlier, and even try to do them as soon as we covered the material in class). In general, the Lumen OHM problems only give credit for a correct answer in the correct form; no partial credit.
ACCESS LUMEN OHM THROUGH BLACKBOARD There is a link to the class Lumen page in Blackboard, just underneath the Zoom link on left hand side. It is important to access homework through this link, so that Lumen knows to transfer your grades back to Blackboard. If you have used Lumen OHM before, you may have accessed it by first logging in and then using a Course ID and Enrollment Key, but we are not using this method for MAT 126 this Fall. Please let me know if you have any trouble seeing the Lumen content using the link in Blackboard.

        2. Class participation (5%): There will be assignments in Lumen OHM to be done during lectures: many of these problems I will do as examples and you simply have to enter my answer into the assignment. A few I will leave for you to try during lecture, to ask me questions about and complete after class, if necessary. You will have 24 hours to complete these problems.

        3. Weekly quizzes in recitation (20%, drop worst 2 of 9): The teaching assistants will give short (about 20 minutes) quizzes at the end of most recitations on non-exam weeks. For in-person recitations, these are written on a sheet of paper and handed in. For online recitations, quizzes will be given either using Lumen OHM or Gradescope. Details will be provided at the beginning of the semester. No make-up quizzes will be given. The worst two quiz grades will be dropped and missed quizzes will count among these.
There are no recitation quizzes in weeks 5, 9 and 13, when we use the recitation meetings to have exams.

        4. Exams in recitation (3 exams, 15% each, 45% total): There will be three exams taking up an entire recitation section in weeks 5, 9 and 13. These will cover roughly Chapters 1, 2 and 3 respectively; the exact sections covered on each exam are given in the lecture schedule below. For Lecture 1 these will be paper-and-pencil exams completed on the provided forms and handed in at the end of the exam period.

        5. Online final exam (10%): There will be a cumulative online final exam on all the sections of textbook covered in the class. It will be given in the Lumen OHM system, the same system used for the online homework. Some form of online proctoring will be used.


        Blackboard is the Stony Brook University class management system. Your homework, quiz and exam grades will be posted here. Letter grades for the course are posted in the Solar System. I will occasionally post announcements in Blackboard; you should receive email notifications whenever this occurs. Homework assignments and the online final can be accessed through your Blackboard account. Also links to the lectures via Zoom.

Solar System

        Solar System is the Stony Brook University administrative management system (registration, bills,...). It is not used for classes, except to post letter grades at the end of the semester..

Stony Brook Virtual SINC Site

        Late in the course I expect to demonstrate software from the Virtual Sinc Site. This gives you access to various software packages on a university license, such as Mathematica and Matlab. These systems, among others, are can be used to compute some difficult integrals symbolically (Section 3.5 of the text) and most numerically (Section 3.6). I plan to demonstrate how they are used in lecture, but I won't require their use on assessments. Using the virtual Sinc Site requires downloading the Citrix receiver software (you will be prompted). Even though we won't need to use the Virtual Sinc Site much in this class, it is good idea to make sure you can access it for future classes.

Math Learning Center (MLC) and office hours

MLC webpage.

Normally, the MLC is a room in the basement (SL level) of the Math Tower where you can go for face-to-face help with teaching assistants and faculty (not necessarily your own instructors). However, for Fall 2020 the MLC will be entirely online. To use the MLC click this link for MLC webpage. You should see a list of tutors who are available right now, and a schedule of who is available throughout the week.

When there are tutors online, there is a zoom link to the session for that tutor. The zoom sessions are set up so that the student needs to be authenticated, usually with SBU netid, and the tutor is supposed to use the waiting room so that they get admitted "on demand" -- typically one student at a time. Each MAT 126 TA is supposed to hold three office hours each week, two of which take place in MLC. You may either seek out your own TA, or get help from whoever is available at the moment (however, TAs from other classes might not have access to MAT 126 textbook or assignments, so you will have to describe the problem to them, or show it to them with the share-screen feature).

Here is a link to check who is holding math department undergraduate advising hours now (questions about placement exams, classes, scheduling,...).

Here is a link to check who in the math departement is having regular (not MLC or advising) office hours now.


        You can download Zoom here, if you do not already have it installed on your computer. Access to Zoom lectures and recitations will be provided through your Blackboard account.

Pass/No Credit

The G/P/NC deadline is the last day of classes. This policy allows you to set a threshhold so that if you score above the threshold in a class you get a that grade on your transcript, and otherwise you get a P (for pass) or NC (no credit), neither of which affects your GPA. For example, if you set the threshhold at C and if you get a C- or a D you will get a P in the course (which means it won't count towards major requirements, but also won't affect your GPA). A grade of F gives an NC (also won't affect your GPA), and any grade equal to or higher than your threshhold will count as usual. Usually one can only P/NC one course per semester, but this semester the university is allowing students to P/NC two classes. Details about G/P/NC can be found at SBU G/P/NC page.

Lecture Schedule

For each week I list sections of the text we plan to cover that week. When two sections are listed, we will generally do one per lecture. When there are three listed, the middle topic will often straddle both lectures.

Online homework on each week's sections will be assigned in Lumen OHM and due for everyone at the end of the following week. However, it is very highly recommended that you to complete the assignment by the time of your recitation class. Each recitation will end with a short 10-15 minute quiz on the same material, so it is to your advantage to have done all the problems and ask for help during the recitation, before the quiz. The problems on Lumen may be redone after recitation if you missed any originally (that is why they are not officially due until the end of the week). Homework assignments will be visible from the beginning of the semester. Week 1, Aug 24 - Aug 28
        Topics covered:
        Course administration, class webpage, Blackboard, Lumen OHM
