Concepts form pre-calculus and calculus. Numbers, algebra, equations and inequalities. Functions and second order expressions. Logarithms with base 10 and base e. Limits and asymptotes, derivatives, analysis of extrema for functions of one variable. Sequences and series. Mechanics: primarily movement and force.
Knowledge: Know about the concepts presented in the course so that the student is able to take further courses in mathematics and physics required in the engineering degree.
Skills: The student will be able to structure, solve, document and present problems from the course content. They will also be able to interpret and evaluate solutions.
General competence: The student will see the use of concepts from mathematics as a tool for solving problems from both math and physics. They will see parallels between physics and math e.g., in the equations for movement.
Required prerequisite knowledge
Form of assessment
Specified printed and hand-written means are allowed. Definite, basic calculator allowed
Mandatory assignments must be approved by course lecturer within a given deadline.
There must be an early dialogue between the course coordinator, the student representative and the students. The purpose is feedback from the students for changes and adjustments in the course for the current semester.In addition, a digital course evaluation must be carried out at least every three years. Its purpose is to gather the students experiences with the course.
