Course Description

Single variable calculus is described, which is composed of the following: derivative, increase and decrease of function, local maximum and local minimum of function, real-valued continuous functions, derivatives of fraction and composite functions, derivatives of some functions, mean value theorem, secondary derivatives, derivatives of inverse function, derivatives of parametric representation function, derivatives of local limit in indeterminate form, Taylor series, antiderivatives in some functions, definite integral, fundamental theorem of calculus, area, volume, curves length, and improper integral. In this course, you will acquire knowledge on Diploma Policy 3,4.

Course Objectives

Students can solve the fundamental matters of calculus by understanding special subjects such as thermodynamics, material dynamics, mechanical mechanics, fluid dynamics, etc.

Grading Policy

Grades will be evaluated by intermediate assignment (60%), final assignment (40%).
