Calculus II (NYU)
prof. Ryan Hynd, Ph.D.

'Course MATH-UA 122' is the standard (or semi-standard) Calculus II course, NYU/Courant Institute style. The syllabus (as of 27/9/2011) states that one of the foremost goals of the course is to teach the student how to think and analytically solve problems, rather than to show him/her the methodology; "to move the student from computational processes to conceptual thinking and communication."

The course makes good use of what the internet has to offer, by way of a website/program called "WebAssign" which is essentially an online auto-grader service. In addition to providing practice for computational problems, WebAssign also provides (occasional) links to videos/walkthroughs on how to solve problems, additional practice problems, and always has a link to the specific textbook section about the problem (in e-book form).

Various scribblings
u/du substitution with a twist with which some might not be familiar: solving for x in terms of u: example
