Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Mathematics is an essential part of the engineering programmes. Nevertheless, it is not a a goal on its own, but rather a necessary tool for understanding the technical subjects. Therefore, we aim to both introducing the basic mathematical concepts and deepen the logical and analytical thinking of our students.

The subject is divided into four chapters. In the first chapter we study real functions of one real variable and their properties, in the second chapter we introduce the notion of derivative and study its properties and applications. In the third chapter we introduce Gauss elimination method for solution of systems of linear algebraic equations. In the last chapter we apply it to the geometric problems in three-dimensional Euclidean space.
