Course Information

Course Objectivs

1 Calculate integrals of real functions of a real variable ,using anti derivation , the method of integration by parts , the variable change method , the simplification of rational functions, the simplification of trigonometric functions. Know how to calculate areas using the concept of integral. Know how to solve improper integrals and study their convergence..

2 To identify and solve various types of ordinary differential equations by variable separation methods , change of variable , variation of parameters , selection method to determine a particular solution .

3 Know how to solve linear differential 1st order equations.

4 Know how to solve some basic types of partial differential equations . Know how to use the method of separate functions.

Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Methodology: Lectures, Problem solving and discussion sessions and presentation problems. Exercises. Study, research, problem solving. Two frequencies and a resource examination where the student can make an overall examination or just the part corresponding to one of the frequencies. There will not be minimum to achieve in each partial evaluation, but students will be encouraged by teachers to develop a study throughout the semester. Every week, the student attendance to answer questions, will be equal to half hours of weekly contact.
