Course objectives
This is a basic course of mathematical analysis. The content is differential and integral calculus and infinite series. Students will understand fundamental methods and will be able to apply these methods to concrete problems.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students will be able to:
work with the derivative and (indefinite and definite) integral;
analyse the behaviour of functions;
understand the use of infinite number series and power series;
understand selected applications of the calculus;
apply the methods of the calculus to concrete problems.
  • Continuous functions and limits
  • Derivatives of functions with applications
  • Indefinite integrals
  • Riemann integral and its applications
  • Series

Teaching methods
There are lectures and tutorials
Assessment methods
Two hours of lectures per week and two hours of compulsory exercises/seminar group. The seminars are evaluated in total by max 5 points. Students, who collect during the semester (i.e., in exercises) less than 2 points, are graded as X and they do not proceed to the final examination. The final exam is written for max 40 points. For successfull examination (the grade at least E), the student needs in total 20 points or more.
