The course aims
Adoption of material covered by the curriculum used in order to obtain knowledge and skills required for independent work and as a good preparation for successful continuation of the study program. Analyze real problems and create appropriate mathematical models and critical reviews of results obtained.
Students will learn the basics of differential calculus including rules of derivation, first and higher order derivative, derivative of composition and inverse function and derivative of parametric function. Application of differential calculus (condition of monotony, extremes of functions, inflection points, L'Hospital's rule, asymptotes). In addition to the differential calculus, students will learn the basics of integral calculus including indefinite integral, method of substitution, method of partial integration. The application of integral calculus (definite integral, Newton-Leibnitz formula, area under the curve, surface and volume of the turntable).

Preferred learning outcomes

  1. To calculate higher degree derivations and to interpret the application of the first derivation.
  2. To relate the calculated parameters characteristic for the function graph and to draw the function graph.
  3. To calculate the indefinite integral of rational functions.
  4. To apply the substitution and partial integration method to the arc length of the curve and the rotation surface.
