Secondary School Mathematics
The theoretical lectures are mainly expositive. The tutorial lectures are used to solve problems under the guidance of the teacher. During tutorial lectures, students are encouraged to solve problems by their own. Concerning the theoretical lectures, a strong interaction between concepts and their concrete application prevails. Before a new concept is introduced in an abstract way, attention is given to the visualization and analysis of particular situations related with the new concept. The transformation of concepts into working tools will be achieved by the individual work of each student, encouraged by the teacher.
To provide the students with the basic knowledge of differential and integral calculus in R and give the fundamental concepts for the study of plane curves. It is intended that students acquire calculation skills. It is also intended that students acquire a critical knowledge of the concepts in such way that they understand the scope and limitations of the studied material as well as their applications.
