Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Mathematics is essential part of education on technical universities. It should be considered rather the method in the study of technical courses than a goal. Thus the goal of mathematics is train logical reasoning than mere list of mathematical notions, algorithms and methods. Students should learn how to analyze problems, distinguish between important and unimportant, suggest a method of solution, verify each step of a method, generalize achieved results, analyze correctness of achieved results with respect to given conditions, apply these methods while solving technical problems, understand that mathematical methods and theoretical advancements outreach the field mathematics.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Other activities


Mathematics I is connected with secondary school education. It is divided in three parts, differential calculus of functions of one real variable, linear algebra and analytic geometry in the three dimensional Euclidean space E3. The aim of the first chapter is to handle the concept of a function and its properties, a limit of functions, a derivative of functions and its application. The second chapter emphasizes the systems of linear equations and the methods of their solution. The third chapter introduces the basics of vector calculus and basic linear objects in three dimensional space.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Passing the course, requirements Course-credit (full-time study): 5 points: -participation on tutorials is obligatory, 20% of absence can be accepted, -submition of semestral project in predefined form. 5 – 15 poinst: -accomplish the written tests, -each test can be repeated once, -it is necessary to get at least 5 out of 15 points. Student has to gain at least 10 points in total to obtain credit and procced to final exam. Course-credit (distance study): Based on participation in consultations student can get 5 - 20 points, in case of absence student can get 5 points for elaboration of additional project. Exam Practical part of an exam is classified by 0 - 60 points. Practical part is successful if student obtains at least 25 points. Theoretical part of the exam is classified by 0 - 20 points. Theoretical part is successful if student obtains at least 5 points. Point quantification National grading scheme 100 – 86 excellent 85 – 66 very good 65 – 51 satisfactory 50 – 0 failed
