4 lectures : Definite and indefinite integrals: area under graph, definite integral, relation with derivatives, indefinite integral, table integrals-I.
4 Lectures :- Polynomials and rational functions: polynomials and long division, proper and improper rational functions, partial fractions decomposition.
3 Lectures :- More algebra: progressions and binomial theorem.
3 Lectures :- Trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions: recollection, addition formulas and further identities, inverse functions.
4 Lectures :- Further differential calculus: differential and derivative, main properties and examples of differentiation, Taylor formula.
4 Lectures :- Integration methods: integral and differential, table integrals-II, integration by parts and by substitution, integration of rational functions.
Intended learning outcomes
