Course detail

Mathematical Analysis I

FSI-SA1Acad. year: 2018/2019

A subject area main content consists in the differential and integral calculus of a one variable function. The acquired knowledge is a starting point for further study of mathematical analysis and related mathematical disciplines, and it serves as a theoretical background for study of physical and technical disciplines as well.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is lectured through lessons supported by exercises at seminars. The content of lessons is focused on a theoretical background of the subject. The exercises have a practical/computational character.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Course-unit credit: active attendance at the seminars, successful passing through two written tests (i.e., from each of them, it is necessary to reach at least one half of all possible points).

Exam: will have both a written part as well as an oral part, a condition for admission to the oral part is receiving at least one half of all possible points from the written part).

Language of instruction


Work placements

Not applicable.


The goal is to acquire knowledge of fundamentals of differential and integral calculus of one real variable functions. Beside theoretical background, students should be able to apply the calculus tools various technical problems.

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

Seminars: obligatory.
Lectures: recommended.
