Learning Outcomes
After successfully completing the course the students will be able do computations with complex numbers, completely characterise real functions with one real variable (maxima, minima, asymptotes, intervals of increasing, decreasing function values)- compute limits of functions using theorems for limits and limits of indefinable forms- compute derivatives of complicated functions, do implicit differentiation of algebraic forms and of functions expressed in parametric form- express and characterise functions in non-cartesian (polar) coordinates - solve problems that require applications of differentiation/extrema-finding in practical problems- expand functions in Taylor series and use them to conduct approximations- compute indefinite and definite integrals using theorems of integrations- compute improper integrals using theorems for integrations and for computing limits of functions- use integrals for solving practical problems (e.g. volumes of solids or rotation)
