Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. Write logical mathematical argumentation.
2. Use the key concepts and techniques from algebra.
3. Analyze the properties of functions of one variable.
4. Solve optimization problems for functions of one variable.
5. Differentiate functions of several variables.
6. Use the basic rules of integral calculus.
7. Apply basic mathematical tools to simple economics problems.
Omschrijving To meet the objectives and facing a substantial variety of starting levels among premaster students, we start with elementary topics in algebra and equations. Then a fairly leisurely treatment of single variable differential calculus follows. The course ends with the treatment of integration and some functions of two or more variables.
