 Spanish term or phrase: cálculo Calculo de Integrales definidas e improprias. Included under Mathematics II course description. I'm not sure if it's "calculus" or "calculation." Thanks!

-> Thanks, but the terminology is "definite" (not "defined") integral, so I would probably translate that phrase as "Calculus of definite and improper integrals" to be as clear as possible.

agree  Luis M. Sosa: Yes, it is calculus (it is understood that we are dealing with a syllabus, we are not performing any calculation here)

calculation / calculus

Explanation:
"Calculation of definite integrals" is the activity, consisting in calculating something; "Calculus of definite integrals" is the branch of mathematics we're dealing with. So it depends on the context.

Example sentence(s):
• Such <b>calculations</b> using the <b>calculus</b> of definite integrals will dominate the rest of this course.

agree  Charles Davis: That's a fair point, and looking at it again I think "calculation" is probably what's intended here.
