These Single Variable Calculus lecture notes cover:

- Arc Length: Derivation of formula for finding the length of a curve. Includes worked examples. Example 2 demonstrates finding the length of a curve with equation y = f(x) by changing to parametric equations.
- Surface Area of a Right Circular Cone: Introduces surface area of a surface of revolution using the case of a right circular cone.
- Surface Area of a Surface of Revolution: Formula for the surface area of a surface of revolution. Includes examples of a line segment, a semicircle, and an astroid.
