The course is an introduction into linear algebra and calculus of one variable.

Linear algebra part consists of: systems of linear equations and their solutions, Gauss elimination, matrices, rank of a matrix, operations with matrices, inverse matrix, determinant and its calculation, eigenvalues and eigenvectors of matrices.

Differential calculus consists of: sequences and their limits. Functions of one real variable, their limits,

continuousness, derivatives. Local and absolute extremes of a function of one variable, investigations of functions. Taylor-polynome.


Seminars assesment:

a) Compulsory attendance of all seminars.

b) Activities at seminars will be checked by mini-tests. There will be 8 mini-tests during the semester, evaluated by 5 points each. Total sum MT = 0 - 40 points.

c) Midterm tests

1st midterm test in 7th week and 2nd midterm test in 13th week of the semester.

Midterm test consists of 4 tasks, each task evaluated by 5 points (maximum 20 points at each midterm test).

A student must gain at least 9 points at one midterm test, but minimum gained from both midterm tests must be at least 20 points. So, total sum VT=20-40 points.

Student's grading from seminars transferred for the exam:

MT/8+VT/4=minimum 5 maximum 15 points.
