## Math 161, Calculus for the Physical Scientists II, Fall 2013

Calculus for Physical Scientists II is the second course in the Calculus sequence for Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, and Chemistry majors. Topics in the course include: sequences, series, inverse functions, exponentials and logarithms, proper and improper integrals, power series and Taylor series, polar coordinates, and complex numbers. This course consists of lecture sessions and lab sessions.

I am responsible for teaching the lab sessions for two sections, including the honors section. I use these lab sessions teach students how to use algebraic software such as Maple to do symbolic computations and how to use the plotting feature. We also use this time to build upon the concepts presented in lecture by working through different types problems in a hands-on format.

In addition to teaching the lab sessions, I am responsible for coordinating online homework using WeBWorK. My duties include addressing student issues, designing homework problems, and assigning homework sets.
