This is the honors version of MAT 132. It goes faster and is more theoretical (i.e., it includes proofs). There will be two midterms and a final as well as weekly homework asignments and quizzes. It also uses a different text. The main topics we will cover are: transcendental functions, methods of integration and infinite series.
