After completing the course the student can
- use derivatives to analyze functions.
- use differentials to approximate changes and errors.
- use integrals to calculate e.g. areas, volumes and mean values and square mean values of functions.
- solve 1st order separable and linear differential equations.
- use relevant mathematical denotation correctly
All practical information on timetables, project work, grading etc., as well as links to web materials are provided in Optim
Degree Programme in Information and Communications Technology
The contents of the course give understanding to use the derivatives to analyze functions, use differentials to approximate changes and errors, solve separable and linear first order differential equations, use integrals to calculate e.g. areas and mean values and square mean values of functions
and use relevant mathematical denotation correctly, moreover the students can use relevant mathematical denotation correctly.
The students will team up for a project work and writing reports on some current and relevant aspect of math, which gives everyone an opportunity to understand the topic; all students will develop their mathematical proficiency.
Task-based assessment supports learning and is continuous throughout the course. Studying in an international group develops students’ ability to intercultural communication and multicultural collaboration.
