Pre-University Calculus - Delft University of TechnologyedX
Was lernen Sie in diesem Kurs?
Mathematics is the language of Science, Engineering and Technology. Calculus is an elementary Mathematical course in any Science and Engineering Bachelor. Pre-university Calculus will prepare you for the Introductory Calculus courses by revising four important mathematical subjects that are assumed to be mastered by beginning Bachelor students: functions, equations, differentiation and integration. After this course you will be well prepared to start your university calculus course. You will learn to understand the necessary definitions and mathematical concepts needed and you will be trained to apply those and solve mathematical problems. You will feel confident in using basic mathematical techniques for your first calculus course at university-level, building on high-school level mathematics. We aim to teach you the skills, but also to show you how mathematics will be used in different engineering and science disciplines. Education method This is a self-paced course consisting of 6 modules (or weeks) and 1 final exam. The class will consist of a collection of 3-5 minute lecture videos, inspirational videos on the use of mathematics in Science, Engineering and Technology, (interactive) exercises, homework and exams. Exercises, homework and the exams will determine the final grade. The course material will be available for the students online and free of charge. Prerequisites This course revises high school level mathematics and is aimed to close the readiness gap between high school and university.
