### Course Syllabus

#### Abstract

The discipline gives the fundamentals of mathematics, provides the foundation for mathematical modeling, and introduces the first concepts of data analysis. The prerequisites are high school algebra and trigonometry. Prior experience with calculus is helpful but not essential.

#### Learning Objectives

• Students will develop an understanding of fundamental concepts of the single and multi variable calculus and form a range of skills that help them work efficiently with these concepts.
• Students will gain knowledge of the derivatives of single-variable functions, their integral, and the derivatives of multi-variable functions.
• The course will give students an understanding of simple optimization problems.

#### Expected Learning Outcomes

• Students should be able to understand and apply basic concepts of the theory of limits, continuous and differentiable single-variable functions, antiderivatives and integrals of single-variable functions, continuous and differentiable several-variable functions.
• Students should be able to compute limits of sequences and functions.
• Students should be able to apply numerical algorithms that solve algebraic equations and compute derivatives and integrals, to model a written description of simple economic or physical phenomena with functions, differential equations, or an integral, use mathematical analysis to solve problems, interpret results, and verify conclusions, determine the reasonableness of solutions, including sign, size, relative accuracy, and units of measurement.
• Students should be able to analyze functions represented in a variety of ways: graphical, numerical, analytical, or verbal, and understand the relationships between these various representations.
• Students should be able to represent a function as the Taylor polynomial and a remainder term.
• Students should be able to compute derivatives and antiderivatives.
• Students should be able to estimate the asymptotical behavior of functions.
• Students should be able to determine the convergence of improper integrals.
• Students should be able to apply the computation of the integrals to the determination of the length of parametric curve arcs, the area of domains, and the volume of solid revolutions.
• Students should be able to understand the relationship between the derivative and the definite integral, as expressed by the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
• Students should be able to describe the space of several variables, convergence in the space, and properties of the distance.
• Students should be able to find the extrema of single- and several-variable functions.
• Students should be able to formulate and solve simple optimization problems.
• Students should be able to understand basic principles of numerical algorithms that solve algebraic equations and compute derivatives and integrals.

#### Course Contents

• Continuous functions: limit of a function, definition of a continuous function, operations with continuous functions, monotonicity, inverse function, properties of continuous functions (basic theorems), types of discontinuity, uniform continuity
• Differentiable functions: definition of the derivatives, properties of differentiable functions, inverse functions, big and little o-notation, the mean value theorem, the second mean value theorem, higher derivatives, l’Hospital’s rule, Taylor’s theorem, numerical solution of algebraic equations
• Integration: indefinite integral, antiderivative, properties of the integral, methods of integration, the Riemann integral, the fundamental theorem of calculus, mean value theorems, improper integrals, numerical computations of integrals.
• Space of several variables and continuous functions on it: n-dimensional space R^n, open and closed sets, limit points, convergence of point sequences, continuous functions in R^n and their properties.
• Differentiation of functions of several variables: partial derivatives, differentials, the chain rule, the mean value theorem and Taylor’s theorem, optimization, sufficient conditions of extrema, constrained optimization, implicit function theorem, inverse mapping and Jacobians.

#### Assessment Elements

• 2nd module Exam
At the end of the second and fourth modules the students pass a written exam.
• 4th module Exam
At the end of the second and fourth modules the students pass a written exam. Экзамен письменный. Экзамен проходит с прокторингом в системе Moodle. Студенты получают задание, решают на бумаге, в конце загружают фотографии/сканы решений. Экзамен длится 2 астрономических часа. Во время экзамена разрешено только смотреть в условия задач и писать на листах бумаги, которые были чистыми до начала экзамена. Компьютер для выполнения заданий не нужен. Если у студента случился обрыв связи продолжительностью менее пяти минут, он может продолжить написание экзамена (дополнительное время при этом не предоставляется). Если случился обрыв связи продолжительностью дольше 5 минут, то считается, что студент пропустил экзамен. В этом случае ему будет предложено без штрафов сдать экзамен устно в течение недели с момента данного экзамена.
• 1st semester Regular activity
During the year students must also complete weekly home assignments. Professors can ask students to present their written solutions orally. Quizzes are held regularly in classes.
