Teaching Methods

There are theoretical and theoretical-practical classes.
The theoretical classes are mainly expository, where each concept is introduced, if possible, in different ways (geometrically, numerically or algebraically). To facilitate the understanding of the concepts, many application examples are also described.
The theoretical-practical classes consist in exercises to be solved under the guidance of the professor. The students are also encouraged to solve problems autonomously.

Learning Outcomes

Limits and derivatives of real functions.
Definition and understanding of the Riemann integral concept.
Computation of integrals (by using different rules) and applications (areas between curves and volumes).
Solving differential equations.
Study of curves defined by parametric equations.
Polar coordinates and its relation with Cartesian coordinates.
Modeling and solving real problems that involve the new concepts.
