CALCULUS | FMA645 |

**Aim**

The course aims at giving a basic treatment of one-dimensional calculus. Particular emphasis is put on the role which this plays in applications in different areas of technology, in order to give the future engineer a good foundation for further studies.

*Knowledge and understanding*

For a passing grade the student must

- within the framework of the course with confidence be able to handle elementary functions of one variable, including limits, derivatives and integrals
- be able to set up and solve some types of linear and separable differential equations that are important in the applications
- be able to give a general account of, and illustrate the meaning of, mathematical concepts in calculus in one variable that are used to construct and study mathematical models in the applications.

*Skills and abilities*

For a passing grade the student must

- be able to demonstrate a good ability to carry out algebraic calculations, and without difficulties be able to compute with complex numbers
- in connection with problem solving be able to demonstrate an ability to independently choose and use mathematical concepts and methods of one-dimensional analysis, and to construct and analyse simple mathematical models
- in the context of problem solving be able to integrate knowledge from different parts of the course
- be able to demonstrate an elementary ability to explain the solution of a mathematical problem within the course, in a well structured way and with clear logic.
