Learning outcomes of the course unit

After passing the course students will have necessary skills for performing operations with vectors defined either generally or by their coordinates. Except this application of vectors in the spherical trigonometry will be deeply explained. The next outpiuts are: application of vector calculus in metrix and positional problems in analytical geometry, operations with matrices and solving systems of linear algebraic equations.
Bringing off basic differential calculus will permit successfully analyse problems of behavior of analytical curves.

Prerequisites

Basics of mathematics as taught at secondary schools. Graphs of elementary functions (powers and roots, quadratic function, direct and indirect proportion, absolute value, trigonometric functions) and basic properties of such functions. Simplifications of algebraic expressions. Definition of a geometric vector and basics of 3D analytic geometry (parametric equations of a straight line, dot product of vectors and its applications to metric and positional problems). Identifying the the types and basic properties of conics, sketching graphs of conics)
