Calculus I

(15364)

The student will be able to formulate, solve and understand mathematically the problems arising in engineering. To do so it is necessary, in this first course of Calculus, to be acquainted with the real functions of one variable, their properties of continuity, derivability, integrability and their graphic representation.
The student will understand the concepts of derivative and integral and their practical applications. Also, it will manage sequences and series of real numbers and of functions that will apply to numeric approximation of functions.
