Course objectives
This is a basic course of the mathematical analysis. The content is the differential and integral calculus and the theory of infinite series. Students will understand theoretical and practical methods and will be able to apply these methods to concrete problems. The emphasis on theory and examples is balanced in the course.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students will be able to:
work both practically and theoretically with the derivative and (indefinite and definite) integral;
analyse the behaviour of functions of one real variable.
understand the theory and use of infinite number series and power series;
understand the selected applications of the calculus;
apply the methods of the calculus to concrete problems.
  • Continuous functions and limits
  • Derivative and its applications
  • Elementary functions
  • Indefinite integral
  • Riemann integral and its applications (including an introduction to basic differential equations)
  • Introduction to differential (and integral) calculus of functions of several variables
  • Infinite series

Teaching methods
There are theoretical lectures and standard tutorial
Assessment methods
Two hours of lectures per week and two hours of exercises/seminar group. During the semester, there are 5 written tests in the seminar groups. The seminars are evaluated in total by max 10 points. Students, who collect during the semester (i.e., in exercises) less than 5 points, are graded as X and they do not proceed to the final examination. The final exam is a written test for max 35 points. For successful examination (the grade at least E), the student needs in total 20 points or more.
