Course content

This course, together with MA0002, will give a sufficient mathematical background for science courses requiring only basic mathematics. The course will introduce functions of one real variable, exponential, logarithm and trigonometric functions, differentiation and integration with applications, implicit differentiation, and linear approximation.

Learning outcome

1. Knowledge. The student has basic knowledge of mathematical analysis of functions of a single real variable, including limits, continuity, differentiation and integration. The student has more detailed knowledge about special functions, such as exponentials, logarithms and trigonometric functions. 2. Skills. The student is able to apply his or her knowledge of mathematical analysis to solve simple problems from mathematics and the natural sciences.

Learning methods and activities

Lectures and exercises.

Compulsory assignments

Further on evaluation

Course grade based on written final examination. The re-sit examination may be given as an oral examination.

Course materials

Will be announced at the start of the course.
