Requirements | The students master the basic mathematical concepts and in particular can deal with sets, functions, terms and equations. They can determine the properties and graphs of the most important real functions. They can calculate limits on sequences and functions, and examine functions for continuity. They know the definition of the differential calculus and its descriptive meaning, master the application of the different differential calculus rules and can determine tangents. They master the Riemann integral and can estimate integral values. They use the law of differential and integral calculus and the most important integration rules for calculating integrals. |
