Student is able to
- apply the concepts of limit and derivative when solving practical problems
- interpret derivative as rate of change
- determine the derivative using graphical, numerical and symbolical methods
- construct error estimates using the differential method
Prerequisites and co-requisites
Orientation for Engineering Mathematics and Functions and Matrices or similar skills
Limit, Derivative, Partial Derivative, Graphical Differentiation, Numerical Differentiation, Symbolic Differentiation, Applications of Derivative, Error Estimation with Differential.
Student understands the basic concept of derivative and is able to solve simple applications that are similar to the model problems solved during the course. Student also knows how to interpret derivative in graphs and how to compute it numerically. Justification of solutions and using mathematical concepts may still be somewhat vague. Student takes care of his/her own studies and can cope with exercises with some help from the group.
In addition, student is able to apply derivative to basic technical problems, for example to optimization. Student is also able to explain the methods of her/his solutions. Mathematical notations and concepts are mainly used correctly. Student is able to solve the given exercises independently and also helps other students in the group.
In addition, student has an overall understanding of course topics. He/she can solve more demanding engineering problems and has the ability to present and justify the chosen methods of solution. Mathematical notations and concepts are used precisely. Student is motivated and committed to help the group to manage the course.
