Synopsis:

The course summarizes and systematizes the secondary school curriculum and builds on them. Students will get acquainted with the basics of linear algebra, differential and integral calculus of real functions of one real variable in applications. Emphasis is placed on the requirements of further study - solving equations of various types and their systems, modifications of trigonometric expressions and geometry of conic sections and the mutual position of the sphere and the plane.

Requirements:

Credit requirements:

1. Written demonstration of acquired knowledge in two tests during the semester (7th and 14th week), for successful passing of the credit it is necessary to obtain at least 50% of points from each of the two tests. The tests will each contain four numerical examples (scoring 0-5 points) of the material covered in lectures and seminars (maximum 20 + 20 points). The first test contains topics: solving equations, editing expressions, properties of functions. The second test contains topics: differential and integral calculus, analytical geometry. The number of points exceeding the minimum number to meet the credit (10 points) is included in the exam (ie 0-10 points from each test, a maximum of 20 points in total).

Test requirements:

1. The exam is only written, consisting of eight numerical examples supplemented by theoretical sub-questions and covers the subject matter in its entirety, the evaluation of individual examples is 0-10 points, the maximum is 80 points. Points from credit tests (points obtained above the minimum) are added to the point gain of the exam test and subsequent grading is standard.
