Aims

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
Content

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