After the course the students should be acquaited with the general properties of geometric vectors, know all about the dot, cross, and scalar triple products of geometric vectors, understanding their role in spherical trigonometry. Rhey should be able to apply such products when solving metric and positionalproblems in 3D analytic geometry.
They should be able to compute with matrices, perform elementary transactions, and calculate determinants, solve systems of linear algebraic equations by Gauss elimination method.
Pochopit základní pojmy diferenciálního počtu funkce jedné proměnné a geometrické interpretace některých pojmů. Zvládnout derivování a naučit se řešit úlohu průběhu funkce.
They should understand the principles of integration of elementary functions.
