## Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

### Learning objectives

#### Knowledge

• Real functions of two and more variables – definitions, results and techniques concerning partial derivatives.
• Integration in plane and space wrt. various coordinate systems – including connections between such integrals.
• Complex numbers as an extension of the real numbers – in a geometric as well as an algebraic setup. The connection between the complex exponential function and trigonometric functions.
• The structure of the set of solutions to different types of first and second order differential equations.

#### Skills

• Differentiation of functions of several variables (including composite functions) as well as a geometric understanding of this.
• Extrema for functions of two and three variables.
• Maxima and minima for functions of two variables.
• Set up and evaluate simple integrals in plane and space wrt. various coordinate systems.
• Add, multiply and divide complex numbers. Transform between polar and Cartesian form.
• Solve and plot various types of first- and second order differential equations.

#### Competences

• Can apply methods and concepts from calculus, including integration, complex numbers and differential equations to given problems relevant to the study program.

### Type of instruction

Lectures, exercises, videos, quiz, digitalized self-study, workshops on calculus problems relevant to the study program. Possibly supplemented by e-learning.

Since it is a 5 ECTS course, the work load is expected to be 150 hours for the student.
