Mathematics I

Subject description

Number systems (positive integers, rational numbers, real numbers, complex numbers). Sequences (accumulation point, 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, limit , continuity). Derivative of a function (derivation rules, geometric interpretation, differential, applications). Integral of a function (indefinite integral, definite integral, applications of definite integral).

The subject is taught in programs

Electrical engineering 1st level

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 as well as other building blocks of science/mathematics/engineering literacy.

Teaching and learning methods

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

Expected study results

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,
  • compute the derivatives of elementary functions and integrals of some classes of functions,
  • identify and understand technical/engineering problems in differently structured environments/contexts,
  • identify, analyse and use mathematical tools to solve simple natural science and engineering authentic problems,
  • appropriately display/communicate and critically evaluate the solution procedure and the obtained results,
  • demonstrate an appropriate attitude towards engineering practice and science.
