Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The set of real numbers, operations with algebraic expressions, equations and inequalities, functions, exponential and logarithmic equations, trigonometric functions and equations, analytic geometry, arithmetic and geometric sequences.

Teaching methods

Other activities


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.
