Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2022-23

This is the first maths course in the degree and students take it in the first term in their first year. Hence, this is an introductory course which deals with and formalizes more rigorously material which students may have already studied at high school. The first three parts deal with analyzing function of one real variable (limits, continuity, derivatives, graphs and integration). The last part deals with introductory concepts in linear algebra.
