Course Objectives

The main aim of this course is to give students some basic ideas of calculus, which is the mathematics of motion. The purpose is not just making the students learn these ideas but to enable them apply these ideas to solve problems of practical nature. It will help the students of engineering, computer science and bioinformatics to understand and solve the problems of mathematical and logical nature in other courses of these disciplines.
