Resources for MATH143, Spring 2023

Course information

MATH143 is an overview of techniques of integration and the theory of infinite series.

  • Prerequisites: Math 142.

  • Course Coordinator: Moshe Adrian; office Kiely Hall 603; e-mail:
  • Textbook: Essential Calculus, Second Edition, by James Stewart. We will cover Sections 6.1-6.5, 5.8, 6.6, and 8.1-8.8.
  • Midterms: There will be three midterms.
  • Homework : There will be homework every week, on WebAssign. To sign up, follow these instructions: 1) Go to 2) You will need to register, using the class key "qc 2574 7483" (without quotation marks). If you have any trouble with webassign, there is a technical support hotline at 1-800-955-8275.
  • Final Exam: There will be a final exam, held on
  • Grading: The grade will be calculated as follows: 25% Homework, 25% for each midterm, and 25% for the final. Since there are three midterms and one final, this adds up to 125%.  But: you will be able to drop your lowest grade from the three midterms and final. Thus, the total grade will add up to 100% and not 125%.

  • Queens College Genral Education Statement: This course satisfies the Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning (MQR) requirement of the Pathways General Education Required Core. All MQR courses must satisfy the following learning outcomes: MQR 1: Interpret and draw appropriate inferences from quantitative representations, such as formulas, graphs, or tables. MQR 2: Use algebraic, numerical, graphical, or statistical methods to draw accurate conclusions and solve mathematical problems. MQR 3: Represent quantitative problems expressed in natural language in a suitable mathematical format. MQR 4: Effectively communicate quantitative analysis or solutions to mathematical problems in written or oral form. MQR 5: Evaluate solutions to problems for reasonableness using a variety of means, including informed estimation. MQR 6: Apply mathematical methods to problems in other fields of study.
