Course abstract

The study course deals with analytic geometry, limits, differentiation of function of one variable, indefinite integration and numerical integration. 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 Civil Engineering science and related fields.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

Upon successful completion of this course:
1. Students are able to manage and demonstrate knowledge and critical understanding of analytic geometry, limits, differentiation of function of one variable, indefinite integration and numerical integration. Students manage the application of the acquired topics in practical examples related to the specialty of the Civil Engineering science and related fields. – practical works.
2. Students are able to show understanding of the corresponding concept and regularities, to perform necessary calculations and operations. Students are able to use appropriate software for calculations. – practical works.
3. Working in a group or doing work independently, student is able to apply the mathematical calculations corresponding to the specialty problem situation, to make a professional assessment and interpretation of the intermediate result of the calculations and the final results – independent works.
