Course Description

The contents of the lectures are summarized as follows: (1) trigonometric functions (also called circular functions, angle functions or goniometric functions), (2) exponential and logarithmic functions, (3) sequence and series, (4) vector, and (5) complex number.

Course Objectives

The aim of this course is to understand the following items: (1) basic concepts of elementary functions (i.e., trigonometric functions, exponential function, logarithmic function, etc.), (2) how to calculate the limit of infinite sequence and the sum of infinite series, and (3) how to use vector and complex number.

Grading Policy

Students are evaluated by a term examination, some midterm examinations, and some quizzes.
