Course Overview

  • MATH 1021 is a four-credit calculus course that continues the study of calculus. More techniques of integration will be investigated in this course. The concepts of limits, differentiation, and integration will be applied to problems in differential equations, sequences, series, and Taylor series. Parametric equations, polar coordinates, and vectors will also be introduced.

Course Outcomes

  • Apply the core concepts of differential and integral calculus to solve problems in Calculus 1:
    • Review of integration: Area approximation, substitution methods, The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, exponential, logarithmic, and inverse trigonometric functions.
    • Advanced integration techniques: Integration by parts, trigonometric integrals, integration using trigonometric substitution, integration using partial fractions, numerical integration, improper integrals.
    • Differential equations: Direction/slope fields, numerical solutions, separable differential equations, first-order linear equations.
    • Sequences and series: Introduction to sequences and series, infinite series, tests for convergent series.
    • Taylor and Maclaurin series: Definition of Taylor and Maclaurin series, power series.
    • Polar coordinates: Explanation of the polar coordinate system, integration using polar equations, conic sections in polar coordinates.
    • Parametric equations: Introduction to parametric equations, calculus using parametric curves
    • Vectors: Introduction to vectors, dot product, cross product, equations of lines and planes in space.
  • Utilize numerical, graphical, analytical and approximation models in pure and applied settings.
  • Develop visual literacy of mathematical concepts through graphical analysis.
  • Communicate mathematical concepts and apply complex symbolic representation in written, verbal, and technological settings.
  • Develop the ability to identify and apply multiple mathematical problem-solving techniques for a specific situation.
  • Gain introductory level knowledge appropriate to a single variable calculus course of mathematical definitions and proofs of key theorems.

      Course Prerequisites

      • One semester of college-level calculus (MATH 1020)

      *Please note these prerequisites are highly suggested and support course preparedness and success. We recommend having completed the listed prerequisites before enrolling and within the past seven years.

      How do exams work?

      All exams are taken online. Major exams are required to be proctored online through ProctorU. For instructions on how to take your exams online, visit UNE Online’s ProctorU site. Please note exams must also be proctored with the UNE-approved external webcam.


      How do labs work?

      • MATH 1021 is a lecture-only course. We do not offer an associated lab component for this course.

      24/7 Online Registration

      Courses Typically Begin Every Two to Three Weeks

      Working at the pace typical for a four-semester hour course, the average student will complete this online course in approximately 16 weeks. Many students have elected an online course for the sake of flexibility. Since the course is self-paced, you may be able to complete the course in less than 16 weeks.

      You may enroll for a course at anytime through our self-service registration portal. You will need to enable Flash in your browser first (here are step-by-step instructions). Payment is needed in full at the time of registration.

      You must be registered for your class by 12:00 noon EST on the Monday before the class starts. Your official start date is the date that the course opens and you will have 16 weeks from that date to complete your course.





      If you have any questions about registration, the coursework or course requirements, please reach out to one of our student service advisors at the email or phone number below.
