Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will achieve the subject's objectives. They will get an understanding of the basics of integral calculus of functions of one variable, know how to integrate elementary functions and apply these (length of a curve, volume and surface area of a rotational body, static momentums and centre of gravity). Students will acquaint themselves with the basic concepts of the calculus of functions of two and more variables. They will be able to calculate partial derivatives of functions of several variables. They will get an understanding of the total differential of a function and its geometrical meaning. They will also learn how to find local and global minima and maxima of two-functions. They will get acquainted with directional derivatives of functions of several variables and their calculation.
