Area, volume and arc length. Modeling with differential equations, first order separable and linear differential equations, Euler's method, second order linear differential equations with constant coefficients.
Knowledge The candidate
- knows and can use: a) concepts, results and methods from real analysis of single-variable functions related to limits, continuity, differensiation, integration and differential equations. b) concepts, results and methods related to systems of linear equations. c) numerical methods for solving equations, integrals and differential equations.
- knows some engineering applications of mathematics
- understand that change per unit of time can be measured, calculated, summed up and included in equations
- knows both possibilities and limitations in the use of Mathematical software.
Skills The candidate can:
- Use data tools to make numerical calculations.
- manipulate symbols and formulas
- solve problems by analytical methods.
General competence The candidate should be able to use mathematics to model and solve theoretical and practical problems as they will meet them in their subject area in the study and in professional life. Candidates should be able to use databased simulations and analysing tools to visualize and solve mathematical problems.
