Course description and aims

Based on "Calculus I", this course provides recitation for the limit of sequences of numbers and functions, applications of differentiation of functions of a single variable and partial differentiation of multivariate functions, series of numbers and sequences of functions.

The aim of this recitation course is to cultivate a better understanding of analysis which will be important for
science and engineering.

Student learning outcomes

Following "Calculus I", this course aims for a deeper understanding and development of the theory of calculus.


Limit, continuity, Taylor's theorem, series, sequence of functions

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

A recitation class is held every week in accordance with the progress of the lectures.
