Learning outcomes With this Curricular Unit it is intended that students acquire basic knowledge of Differential and Integral Calculus of real functions of real variable. At the end of this Curricular Unit the student should be able to:
1) Compute limits of real functions of real variable;
2) Study the continuity of real functions of real variable;
3) Compute derivatives of real functions of real variable;
4) Apply the derivatives to the computation of maxima and minima of real functions of real variable;
5) Compute primitives and integrals of real functions of real variable;
6) Use integral calculus to determine areas and volumes of surfaces generated by revolution, as well as length of plain curves.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The classes will be theoretical-practical. The teacher presents the concepts and the results and illustrates the theory with examples and applications. The student is encouraged to participate in classes, interacting with the teacher and sometimes solving exercises and problems. Autonomous work, consisting mainly in solving the exercises, is encouraged.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
