      After this course you can:
 calculate with real numbers, fractions, powers, roots, functions (goniometric, exponential, logarithmic), equations, angles, matrices and vectors
 differentiate real functions in one or more variables
 work with concepts like gradient vectors, directional derivatives and total differentials
 apply differential calculus in calculating extreme values, limits and local approximations

 In Mathematics 1 we expand Secondary School Mathematics with emphasis on differerential calculus in one or several variables 



Obligatory: • Mathematics 1, Wim Gielen 2015, available on Blackboard August, 2017 Recommended: • Calculus, Wim Gielen 2013, available in August as a booklet and as a free pdffile on Blackboard 
• 14 hours lecture • 14 hours problem session • 56 hours individual study period Extra information teaching methods: Part of this course are two digital tests on math skills. 
• Calculation Techniques • Matrices and Vectors • Sequences and Limits • Functions • Differentiation • Extreme Values • Partial derivatives 
There will be three intermediate tests and a written exam. 
This is a course in the theme `Physics and Mathematics'.Starting point is Secondary School Mathematics, incidental gaps will be filled during the course. During the first week a diagnostic computer test will be organized, following that test a special booklet 'Calculus' is available to repair gaps in basic calculation techniques.
