 Prerequisite：high school mathematics
 Recommended for： freshmen
 Introduction：
This course provides a first introduction into the theory of differentiation and integration. The course mainly serves as a bridge between high school mathematics and university mathematics. Its main goal is to make students acquainted with rigorous mathematical thinking. This is done via learning basic concepts such as limits, continuity, differentiability, etc. on the one hand and fundamental theorems such as the intermediate value theorem, the extreme value theorem, the mean value theorem, etc. on the other hand.Moreover, the course is intended to train students problem solving skills as well as writing and oral skills. Finally, the course equips students with the basic tools needed in the more applied sciences and is the entrance door to more advanced courses on mathematics.
