Course objectiveThe aim of this course is to give an introductory course on basics of analysis, to teach limit, derivative, integral concepts and their applications. 
Learning outcomes
  1. Define basic functions, take the limit of functions and investigate their continuity,
  2. take the derivatives of functions, using derivative a student can sketch and interpret the graph of functions,
  3. solve maximum and minimum problems,
  4. classify integrals, use techniques of integration,
  5. define and classify improper integrals,
  6. apply derivative and integral concepts to his/her profession.
  7. define sequences, analyize the convergence of sequences, can recognize series and use convergence tests for series, can find Taylor and maclaurin series expansion of given functions.
