Course description:

Objective of the course:

  • Introduce students to the basics of vector algebra, differential and integral calculus of functions of one variable, and their applications.


Learning outcomes:

After the completion of the course the students will be able to:

  1. Use algebraic operations with vectors in 2D and 3D Euclidean space or coordinate system after coordination.
  2. Define the concepts of function, domain and graph and reproduce graphs of elementary functions.
  3. Determine the natural domains of simpler elementary functions
  4. Use tabular derivations and derivation rules when deriving complex functions, products and quotients.
  5. Apply the derivation of the function to find the tangent, local extremes and solve the limits by L’Hospital’s rule.
  6. Distinguish the concepts of definite and indefinite integrals and use the Newton-Leibniz formula using tabular integrals.
  7. Solve the integral by the method of substitution and the method of partial integration.
  8. Connect the notion of a definite integral and the area between two curves.
