Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

The ability to understand the basic problems of higher calculus and use derivatives, integrals and differential equations for solving specific problems.

Learning objectives

The main goal of the course is to enhance the knowledge of calculus from the previous semester and explain the basic principles and methods of higher calculus. The emphasis is put on handling the practical use of these methods for solving specific problems.

Why is the course taught

The IMA2 course follows on the IMA1 course and complements the necessary knowledge of the concepts of calculus needed to understand and master advanced technical and physical subjects.


Prerequisite kwnowledge and skills

The IMA1 course.

Syllabus of numerical exercises

Problems discussed at numerical classes are chosen so as to complement suitably the lectures.

Progress assessment

Written tests during semester (maximum 30 points).

Controlled instruction

Classes are compulsory (presence at lectures, however, will not be controlled), absence at numerical classes has to be excused.

Exam prerequisites

At least 10 points from the tests during the semester.
