Learning outcomes of the course unit
After completing the course, students should be able to:
- estimate the domains and sketch the grafs of elementary functions;
- compute limits and asymptots for the functions of one variable, use the L’Hospital rule to evaluate limits;
- differentiate and find the tangent to the graph of a function;
- sketch the graph of a function including extrema, points of inflection and asymptotes;
- integrate using technics of integration, such as substitution, partial fractions and integration by parts;
- evaluate a definite integral including integration by parts and by a substitution for the definite integral;
- compute the area of a region using the definite integral, evaluate the inmproper integral;
- discuss the convergence of the number series, find the set of the convergence for the power series.
- compute double and triple integral without a transformation;
- using transformation compute double and triple integral without a transformation;
Students should be able to work with expressions and elementary functions within the scope of standard secondary school requirements; in particular, they shoud be able to transform and simplify expressions, solve basic equations and inequalities, and find the domain and the range of a function.

2. Limits and the continuity of the functions of one variable.
3. The derivative of the functions of one variable.
4. Local and absolute extrema of a function.
5. L'Hospital rule, graphing a function.
6. Antiderivatives, the per partes method and the substitution technique.
7. Integration of the rational and irrational functions.
8. Definite integral.
9. Aplications of the definite integral and the improper integral.

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.
