Part 1.

The concept of a function. Properties of the elementary functions: curves, formulas, elementary limits. Sequences: recursion and induction. Limits with applications: asymptotes, the number e, series. Continuous functions. Derivatives: definition and properties, applications. Derivatives of the elementary functions. Properties of differentiable functions: the mean value theorem with applications. Curve sketching. Local extrema. Optimisation. Complex numbers and polynomials.

Part 2.

The concept of primitive function. Simple integration methods: partial integration and change of variable. Partial fractions. Definition of integral. Integration methods. Riemann sums. Geometric and other applications of integrals. Generalized integrals. Differential equations of first order: linear and with separable variables. Linear differential equations. Solving homogeneous and certain inhomogeneous equations. Applications. The Taylor and Maclaurin formulae. Expansion of elementary functions. The importance of the remainder term. Applications of Maclaurin expansions.
