The main goal of the calculus course is to explain the basic principles and methods of higher mathematics that are necessary for the study of electrical engineering. The practical aspects of application of these methods and their use in solving concrete problems (including the application of contemporary mathematical software) are emphasized.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
