Course detail

Mathematical Analysis I F

FSI-TA1Acad. year: 2023/2024

The subject area main content consists of 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.

Secondary school mathematics knowledge.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

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 the possible points).

Exam: will have an oral form with focus on theory. A detailed information will be disclosed in advance before the exam.

Seminars: obligatory.
Lectures: recommended.


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