Honors Calculus II

Course Number: MATH 10860
Instructor: David Galvin

“This is not your high school Calculus course. Aimed at highly engaged math students, Honors Calculus emphasizes the ‘why’ of mathematics as well as the ‘how’. Specifically, it begins with a thorough introduction to mathematical reasoning and proofs and then proceeds to carefully develop the central topics (limits, differentiation, integration) of one variable Calculus. Whether you have had Calculus before or not, this course will challenge you in new ways. It will strongly enhance your critical thinking skills and provide you with a much more solid grounding for any future mathematics courses. Honors calculus courses are required for the honors math major, but they have much to offer for mathematically inclined students of all majors.

Math majors with AP credit for Calculus 1 and 2 may count Honors Calculus 1 and 2 in place of the upper level math courses Introduction to Mathematical Reasoning (20630) and Real Analysis (30850)."
