Objective

Course purpose

During this course you will expand the range of mathematical tools needed in your studies in the field of technology by studying the notion of a function and the use of functions in modelling different phenomena.

Course competences

EUR-ACE: Knowledge and understanding 
You have the knowledge and understanding of mathematics and other basic sciences underlying your engineering specialisation, at a level necessary to achieve the other programme learning outcomes.

Learning outcomes

After completing this course you know the notion of a function, recognise the type of a given function and understand the properties of different kinds of functions.

Content

- The notion of a function and the notation related to functions
- Logarithmic functions and equations
- Exponential functions and equations
- Trigonometric functions: the sine curve
- The use of functions in modelling
- Piecewise defined functions
- Combined functions
- Inverse functions
- Limit of a function

Location and time

The course is implemented 9.1.2023 - 19.5.2023.
