Subject description


  • Enrolment in the first year of study.

Content (Syllabus outline):

Number systems (positive integers, rational numbers, real numbers, complex numbers). Sequences (accumulation points, limit, boundedness). Series (convergence, convergence tests, harmonic series, alternating series). Functions of one real variable (domain of definition, image, oddness and evenness, injectivity, surjectivity, bijectivity, composition, inverse function, elementary functions, continuity, limit). Derivative of a function (derivation rules, geometric interpretation, differential, applications). Integral of a function (indefinite integral, definite integral, applications of definite integral).

Objectives and competences:

  • To master the basic concepts of mathematical analysis and to be able to better understand them.
  • To develop analytical thinking and careful and exact mathematical reasoning.

Intended learning outcomes:

After successful completion of the course, students should be able to:

  • solve basic problems of mathematical analysis, including sequences, series, real functions, derivatives and integrals,
  • choose an appropriate mathematical tool,
  • compute the derivatives of elementary functions and integrals of some classes of functions,
  • analyse and mathematically interpret technical problems,
  • connect different mathematical tools for solving technical problems,
  • critically evaluate the solution.

Learning and teaching methods:

  • Lectures, tutorials, and individualized homework.
  • Collective analysis, interpretation, and solving of technical problems.
