Learning Outcomes
To comprehend and consolidate the notion of a function, with which they dealt in some degree in the last years of Lyceum. To use the graphic representation for the recognition of behavior of functions and to learn how to draw the graphic representation of elementary functions. To recognize the sequences and series (numerical and power series) and to find, if exist, limits and infinite sums. To differentiate various forms of functions (explicit, implicit, parametric, bivariate) and apply the derivatives in the geometry and elsewhere. To integrate elementary and relatively complicated functions with one or two variables and express various quantities as areas, volumes, etc as integrals. Also, to solve some simple differential equations and find their general and partial solution.
