MAT 126 is the second semester of the three-semester calculus sequence MAT 125/126/127. This is a continuation of MAT 125, covering integral calculus. Topics covered include: the fundamental theorem, symbolic and numeric methods of integration, area under a curve, volume, applications such as work and probability, complex numbers. Knowledge of this subject matter is essential for those wishing to pursue studies in mathematics, the physical sciences, economics, engineering, and a host of other fields. A good grasp of differentiation is assumed at the outset.
This is a free online textbook that can be downloaded for from here. In this course we will cover Sections 1, 2, 3, and 7.
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 a 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 be recorded in Blackboard correctly.
Multiple attempts are allowed for each problem without a penalty.
In general, the Lumen OHM problems only give credit for
a correct answer in the correct form; there is no partial credit.
Since the assignements are automatically graded by the system,
you will see the results right away.
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.
There are good reasons for this policy. By not using a calculator, you will

A grade of Incomplete will be granted only if documented circumstances beyond your control prevent you from taking the final exam.
No late homework will be accepted. However, again if you miss a homework assignment due to documented circumstances beyond your control, then, at the discretion of the course coordinator, the relevant score may be dropped in computing your course grade.

Students who require assistance during emergency evacuation are encouraged to discuss their needs with their professors and the Student Accessibility Support Center.

Each student must pursue his or her academic goals honestly and be personally accountable for all submitted work. Representing another person's work as your own is always wrong. Faculty is required to report any suspected instances of academic dishonesty to the Academic Judiciary. Faculty in the Health Sciences Center (School of Health Technology & Management, Nursing, Social Welfare, Dental Medicine) and School of Medicine are required to follow their school-specific procedures. For more comprehensive information on academic integrity, including categories of academic dishonesty please refer to the academic judiciary website at http://www.stonybrook.edu/commcms/academic_integrity/index.html
Stony Brook University expects students to respect the rights, privileges, and property of other people. Faculty are required to report to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards any disruptive behavior that interrupts their ability to teach, compromises the safety of the learning environment, or inhibits students' ability to learn. Until/unless the latest COVID guidance is explicitly amended by SBU, during Fall 2021 "disruptive behavior" will include refusal to wear a mask during classes.
