Objectives and competences

Students acquire the basic knowledge of set theory, mathematical logic, mappings, sets of numbers, sequences and series, real functions, differentiable calculus and integration.
They will have a very good understanding and the ability to use elementary functions. They will acquire the basic skills needed in the mathematical analysis.

Intended learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding:
Knowing and understanding the basic concepts needed in the mathematical analysis. Using the obtained knowledge in other fields of mathematics and other sciences.
Mastering the basic concepts of mathematical analysis is needed in almost all fields of applied mathematics. Mathematical analysis is fundamental in almost all branches of applied mathematics.
Combining theory and computational procedures to solve the simplest problems in applied mathematics.
Transferable skills:
The ability of a correct formulation of a problem, selecting the appropriate method, solving problems independently, the ability to analyze the results obtained.

Learning and teaching methods

Lectures, exercises, homeworks, consultations, extra hours of studying with the help of teaching assistants and tutors, virtual classroom (chatrooms, forums, etc.)


Type (examination, oral, coursework, project):
written exam or 4 midterm exams instead of the written exam,
oral exam or theoretical test,
homework (optional).
Grading: 1-5 (fail), 6-10 (pass) (according to the Statute of UL)
