COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course aims to create an awareness of functions occurring around us, to provide the learners to see the hidden mathematics in life and to guide them in the analyses and use of these functions.At the end of this course students will be able to:      list the hierarchy of number systems and identify any number’s belonging,construct function with the sufficient data they obtained and examine the function’s features and examine  whether it is continuous or discrete or none of them,   paraphrase a formulated function into words and argue the behavior of the function as we change the value or the form of the function,evaluate a given limit if  it exists,state the advantages of continuous functions rather than discontinuous ones and apply related theorems in case of need,    criticize discontinuous functions from the perspective of existence of limit for discontinuous points and predict the behavior of the function at that point,interpret the geometric meaning of derivative at any point and use it in construction of formulas for some geometrical shapes,calculate the derivative of any function,find the maximum and minimum values of any function, and sketch the graph of the function  and apply derivative rules to optimize a given source.
