Objectives of the course
The aim of this course is to train students at the university system, and to teach them the basis of differential and integral calculus for variable functions, with applications on first order ordinary differential equations and on second order linear equations. Complex numbers are studied as well and they are applied to represent the solutions of second order ordinary differential equations.
To represent ordinary differential equations it is necessary to know the concept of a partial derivative and basic concepts on continuity of functions of many variables and on partial derivatives. Many applications of differential and integral calculus are studied. 
Expected skills
Skills in understanding logical reasonings; understanding of differential and integral calculus of the function of one variable. To be good in figures. Skills in reading a technical text.
