Course abstract

The aim of the study course is to learn the application of derivatives of functions of one and two arguments. The study course is intended to acquire the mathematical knowledge and practical skills needed to study future special subjects, as well as to acquire skills for applying math techniques to study different problems related to Engineering science and related fields. During the course, students acquire skills in working with appropriate application software, such as “Matlab”.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

After successfully completing this course, the student:
• Knows and is able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the use of derivatives of functions of one and two arguments and integral calculus. Able to use the acquired knowledge in solving practical tasks related to engineering problems – tests.
• Able to demonstrate understanding of relevant concepts and regularities, perform the necessary mathematical operations and calculations. Able to use appropriate application software to perform calculations – practical and laboratory works.
• Working independently or working in a group, is able to apply mathematical calculations appropriate to the problem situation of the specialty, perform professional evaluation and interpretation of intermediate and final results of calculations – independent works.

Requirements for awarding credit points

Assessment: Test

Description of the organization and tasks of students’ independent work

In writing form and by using the appropriate software, the following independent work must be completed (all tasks are executed correctly) at times specified by the teaching staff:
Independent work 1 - Applications of derivatives of one variable function
Independent work 2 - Applications of derivatives of two variables function
Independent work 3 - Indefinite integration
Independent work 4 - Definite integrals
Independent work 5 - Application of the definite integrals

Criteria for Evaluating Learning Outcomes

Credits are received cumulatively, without an additional knowledge test, if the semester study results are summarised:
• The previous study course Mathematics I (Mate1029) has been completed;
• All independent works are completed at times specified by the teaching staff;
• During the semester each test score is at least 4.
Failed tests can be repeated. The student may overwrite unsuccessfully written test work during the study process at times specified by the teaching staff.
Independent works that have not been graded within the specified time can be defended at the times indicated by the teaching staff, no more than two at one acceptance.
If the conditions for cumulative credit are not fulfilled, the student shall, during the period of individual study and examinations, answer for all the topics covered in the semester as a whole in the form of a written assignment.
