Techniques of integration, exponential growth and decay, separable differential equations, improper integrals, infinite sequences and series, polar coordinates, areas in polar coordinates, geometry of space, and quadric surfaces.

Prerequisite: Grade of C or higher in Math 20100 or placement by the Department. (Part of sequence 20100, 21200, 21300.) 4 hr./wk.; 4 cr.

This is the text, effective Spring 2024.

Syllabus and Homework

The syllabus that went into effect Fall 2022 has not changed. "Math 212 Syllabus and Homework Effective Spring 2024" document below has been updated for use with the current textbook. It consists of three parts:

First, a table in which the first three columns constitute the syllabus and in which the fourth column contains a suggested list of homework problems from the text.

Second, a supplementary set of suggested homework problems which are not from the text. The supplementary problem numbers are preceded by an "s." For example, in the suggested homework problems for Section 7.2, the entry s1 refers to supplementary problem 7.2/s1.

Third, answers and selected solutions to all even numbered suggested problems from the text and all supplementary problems.

For the convenience of students who have access to the Thomas's Calculus: Early Transcendentals, the "Math 212 Syllabus and Homework End After Fall 2023" pdf for that text has been kept to provide additional exercises. Copies of both the 14th and 15th edition will be placed on reserve at both the NAC library and the Marshak library.

All of the suggested problems from that text are in both the 14th and 15th editions, usually with the same number. If the 14th and 15th edition numbers for a problem are different, the listing shows, for example, 53(51), that the problem is listed as number 53 in the 15th edition and number 51 in the 14th edition. Information about online homework problems will be included when available.

ONLINE HOMEWORK: Ask your instructor for a link to your webwork online homework.

The login is the name of you CCNY mail address: For example, my email is, so my webwork name is nshell. The password is the same as your CCNY email password.

Spring 2019 through Summer 2022 Math 212 Calculus II with Introduction to Multivariate Functions

Math 212 (4 hours/4 credits) replaced Math 202 (4 hours/3 credits) as part of a plan to replace the previous calculus sequence consisting of Math 201, 202, 203 and part of 392 with a three semester sequence. This version of Math 212 was changed, effective Fall 2022, to make it comparable to Calculus II in other CUNY schools. Vectors, parametric equations and the introduction to multivariate functions were deleted from the syllabus, and exponential growth and decay, separable differential equations and areas using polar coordinates were added.
