Aims

They should know how to perform operations with matrices, elementary transactions, calculate determinants, solve systems of algebraic equations using Gauss elimination method.

Students will achieve the subject's main objectives. They will get the understanding of the basics of differential and integral calculus of functions of one variable and the geometric interpretations of some of the concepts. They will master differentiating and sketching the graph of a function.

They will be able to perform operations with matrices and elementary transactions, to calculate determinants and solve systems of algebraic equations (using Gauss elimination method, Cramer's rule, and the inverse of the system matrix). They will get acquainted with applications of the vector calculus to solving problems of 3D analytic geometry.
