Mathematics is the language of Science, Engineering and Technology. Calculus is an elementary Mathematical course in any Science and Engineering Bachelor. Pre-university Calculus will prepare you for the Introductory Calculus courses by revising four important mathematical subjects that are assumed to be mastered by beginning Bachelor students:

  • functions,
  • equations,
  • differentiation,
  • integration.

Preuniversity Calculus has been awarded with the Award for Open Education Excellence in the Open MOOC category in 2016.

  • Understand, visualize and manipulate different elementary functions, like powers, roots, polynomials, trigonometric functions, exponential and logarithmic functions.
  • Understand, visualize and solve equations and inequalities involving these elementary functions.
  • Understand the concept of differentiation and to calculate the derivatives of compositions of elementary functions.
  • Understand the concept of integration and to use some elementary integration techniques

The course materials used in this MOOC are available on TU Delft OpenCourseWare and can be viewed and downloaded for free. If you enrol for the MOOC, you will be introduced to up to date techniques in web lectures and webinars. Also you will apply each technique to a case with fellow learners. Ultimately, the combination of these techniques provides a coherent analysis of the problem. If you want to enrol, go to to learn when the next run will start
