## Recommended Prerequisites

Mathematics A from the Portuguese High School Curriculum.

## Teaching Methods

The teaching in this course assumes two formats: theoretical and example classes. During a theoretical class teaching is mostly expository. During an example class teaching will consist of problem solving by the students under the guidance of the lecturer. A strong interaction between notions and their practical application is emphasized. In this task, the visualization and the analysis of concrete examples takes on a central role and prepares the way for the abstract definitions. Tutorial support is available to students to help them on the tasks assigned by the lecturers.

## Learning Outcomes

The student who successfully completes this course will be able to:

1. Compute limits of sequences and functions beyond those studied in High School;

2. Compute derivatives and primitives of elementary functions;

3. Use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to compute areas and lengths;

4. Solve a separable differential equation;

5. Solve a first order linear differential equation;

6. Solve higher order linear differential equations;

7. Solve problems involving applications of differential equations in mathematical modeling.
