Learning outcomes:
_ After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with the definition of the term _limit_ for sequences and real functions and will have learned to master the use of limit theorems. _ They will know the convergence criteria for series and be able to handle them confidently when checking series for convergence. _ They will be able to explain the importance of series expansion for numerical mathematics and computer science applications. _ Students will be familiar with the properties of exponential and logarithmic functions and be able to deal with them confidently in computer science applications. _ They will know the definition of derivation for functions of a variable as a limit value and will have learned to master the derivation rules for functions of a variable. _ Students will be able to develop solutions for the application of differential calculus (setting limits with _L´Hospital´s rule, extreme value tasks, Taylor series and error estimation). _ They will be familiar with the definition of definite and indefinite integrals for variable functions, as well as be able to develop integration solutions using the integration methods _partial integration_ and _integration by substitution_. _ Finally, they will have learned to master complex numbers in the usual forms for representation.

Teaching methods/Media:
Lecture at board Every two weeks an exercise sheet will be distributed and then discussed in small groups the following week. In addition, a tutorial will be offered every two weeks for work in small groups. This is voluntary. In the tutorials, students will be able work on exercises themselves (with support from the tutor, if necessary) and ask questions about the lecture material. The tutorial can also be used to fill knowledge gaps.
