Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...   

  • to use logical connectives and quantifiers correctly,
  • to determine the convergence and possibly the limit of a sequence of reals, in particular of a real series, or of a power series,
  • to determine continuity and differentiability of real functions in one variable, and to determine the derivative of such a function
  • to develop real functions into their Taylor series and to understand the relationship between these objects,
  • to correctly interpret the integral of a real function, and to determine it in simple cases.

Subject of course

Fundamental terms and logic, sequences and series, continuous functions, differential and integral calculus.

Additional information


Sign up for one of the groups in TISS to take part in the exercises. This is possible between Tuesday, March 3rd 2020 at 10 a.m. and Monday, March 9th, 2020 at 6 p.m. For administrative reasons it is not possible to change groups after the first exercise.

In order to ensure that the various exercise groups are used equally, the number of participants is gradually being increased. Once the maximum number of participants is reached in all groups, more spots will be made available. There are enough spots available - if you want to attend the course, you will get a place. However, we cannot guarantee a place in the desired group.

The first exercise sheet will be made availabe here in TISS and is the same for all groups. The rest of the exercise is administered via the TUWEL platform, see e-learning course, no separate registration is necessary.


Competence check

You should complete the electronic competence check in the TUWEL by April 30, 2020. This contributes 4 points to the total number of points. You can do the competence check as often as you like, the best result counts.


The first lecture starts in the week from 9th to 15th March 2020, each of the ten units lasts 120 minutes. The dates in the calendar only reflect the room reservations, the lecture takes place in the following weeks:

• 1st exercise: 11./12. March 2020
• 2nd exercise: 18./19. March 2020
• 3rd exercise: 25./26. March 2020
• 4th exercise: 1./2. April 2020
• 5th exercise: 22./23. April 2020
• First interim test: 30. April, 2020
• 6th exercise: 6./7. May 2020
• 7th exercise: 13./14. May 2020
• 8th exercise: 20./21. May 2020
• 9th exercise: 27./28. May 2020
• 10th exercise: 3./4. June 2020
• Second interim test: 17. June, 2020

Before each of the two practice tests, a trial test is provided in TUWEL, which is discussed in the plenum. Participation in the practice test meetings is voluntary.


Eight examples must be prepared for each exercise unit. They will be made available about a week before the due date via TUWEL (the first exercise sheet is also available via TISS). Tick the examples that you were able to prepare in TUWEL until the night before the respective exercise. Please be careful which exercises you tick – it is not possible to change any tick marks later (e.g. at the beginning of the exercise). If you are not sure about the details, please contact your instructor/tutor before the respective exercise date (either by email or in person during office hours).


The examples are presented by the students on the black board during class. The tutor can ask you to present each ticked example on the black board. This should be done freely, i.e. you should be able to present the example without any additional documents. You must also be able to explain the problem as well as the terms and methods used. If you present an example inadequately on the board, all(!) check marks of this date will be deleted.

Short test

There is a short test in the last ten minutes of each lecture. The question to be solved will be on the topic of the respective lecture unit.


In addition, there are two intermediate tests per semester. The tests take one hour each, (technical) aids such as a calculator, smartphone, formula collection, notes, etc. are not allowed.

One to two weeks after each test date, a follow-up test is offered for students who have a well-founded and proven reason to have missed the regular date (illness, doctor’s visit, excursion, etc.). To participate, please send an email to daniel.temesvari@tuwien.ac.at and send a written confirmation of the reason for absence (e.g. sick note from your doctor etc.).

If you opt out of the class before the first intermediate test, you will not be given a certificate, not even a negative one.


Attendance is compulsory in the lectures, which is checked using short tests. There is no way to make up for missed exercises or short tests. To not attend the lecture means to forfeit all points for this lecture. Therefore, you don’t have to tell your tutor that you are not coming to the lecture.

Office Hours

Please refer to the table below if you have any questions regarding the homework and or the course material. The exact dates and times will be announced here and in our department.




Examination modalities

Examination modalities

Presentation of solutions and weekly short tests and two additional more detailed tests.

In order to get a positive grade, you first need 32 (this is 40%) crossed/ticked exercise examples. The number of scored exercise examples is otherwise not included in the grade.

The competence check attributes up to 4 points. Up to 34 points can be scored in every intermediate test. Three points are being awarded in each of the five short tests before the first intermediate test. The 4 best short tests are being rated, the worst one is discarded. In the five short tests after the first intermediate test, four points are awarded and the four best results are again rated.

Hence, the grading is constituted from the interim and short tests in the following way:

  • 4 points - Competence check
  • 12 points - Short tests before the first interim test
  • 34 points - 1st interim test
  • 16 points - Short tests after the first interim test
  • 34 points - 2nd interim test

Additionally, it is possible to improve a positive final grade via good black board presentations and an active participation. The decision whether such a potential bonus is given and its height is solely up to the tutor. It can only be used to improve an already positive grade. A negative grade can not be turned into a positive one via such a bonus.

  • from 88 points upwards: Very good
  • from 75 points upwards: Good
  • from 63 points upwards: Satisfactory
  • from 50 points upwards: Sufficient
  • less than 50 points: Not sufficient
