squeeze theorem
b) calculate derivatives and to find local extreme values
c) calculate integrals, using several methods like the substitution
method, integration by parts, partial fraction expansion
d) verify if a function is continuous, differentiable,
e) calulate and apply a Taylor polynomial
f) formulate and apply several important theorems for continuous and/or
differentiable functions, like the Intermediate Value Theorem, the Mean

Lectures (3 x 2 hours per week) and seminars (2 x 2 hours per week).
Attendance for at least 10 out of a total of 14 seminars is mandatory.


There is a midterm exam and a final exam. The final grade (G) for
Calculus 1 is a weighted average of the midterm exam (M) and final exam
(F): G=(2M+3F)/5. There is one retake which covers all topics for the
midterm exam and the final exam. Midterm exam or final exam cannot be
retaken separately! More details can be found in the manual on Canvas.
