The contents of the course is the introduction of common mathematical concepts and interpretation of their relations in connection to the methods of solving selected problems of three advanced parts of mathematics, according to which the learning material is structured. In Integral Calculus, the main motive is the preparation to general use of definite and indefinite integrals of real functions of one variable. Under Linear algebra is an emphasis on interpretation of the basic methods for solving systems of linear equations. In Differential Equations is an emphasis on interpretation of the basic procedures for the solution of selected types of differential equations.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Mathematics is essential part of education on technical universities. It should
be considered rather the method in the study of technical courses than a goal.
Thus the goal of mathematics is train logical reasoning than mere list of
mathematical notions, algorithms and methods. Students should learn how to
analyze problems, distinguish between important and unimportant, suggest a
method of solution, verify each step of a method, generalize achieved results,
analyze correctness of achieved results with respect to given conditions, apply
these methods while solving technical problems, understand that mathematical
methods and theoretical advancements outreach the field mathematics.
Course Contents
1st Integral calculus: antiderivative and indefinite integral for functions of one variable.
2nd Integration methods - substitution, integration by parts.
3rd Integration of rational functions, irrational functions, trigonometric functions.
4th Definite integrals: basic concepts, properties, Newton-Leibniz rule.
5th Substitution method and integration by parts for the definite integral.
6th Applications of integrals in geometry.
7th Differential calculus for functions of two variables: definition, domain, limits and continuity.
8th Partial derivatives of first order and higher orders. Total differential.
9th The equation of the tangent plane and of the normal.
10th Extrema of functions of two variables.
11th Implicit function and its derivatives.
12th Ordinary differential equation of the 1st order: types of solutions, separable, homogeneous and linear.
13th Linear differential equations of the 2nd order with constant coefficients: variation of constants, determination of coefficients.
14th Linear differential equations of higher orders.
