Objectives of the course
This course is a link between high school and university. Our students come from different types of high schools, so we aim to homogenize the basic knowledge of students within a short time (almost two weeks). The basics, like inequalities, elementary graphs, trigonometry, are studied in depth and under a more general perspective.

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 representa ordinary differential equations it is necessary to know the concept of a partial derivative and the fondamental concepts on functions continuity of many variables and on partial derivatives.

Many applications of differential and integral calculus are shown.
