Description  This course provides a review of the high school mathematical concepts. In addition, it is dedicated to the basic concepts of mathematical analysis, such as : function, limit and its computations, unidentified forms of limit, continuity on a point and interval, derivative and its techniques.  
Objectives  The course of Math Analysis (Calculus 1) has as its main objective the cover and review of the main math concepts of the high school. Another objective is providing students with the basic concepts of college math and their practicing in exercises and problems related to the computer science program.
