Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal of mathematics is train logical reasoning than mere list of mathematical notions, algorithms and methods. Students should learn how to analyze problems,suggest a method of solution, analyze correctness of achieved results with respect to given conditions.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Course-credit -participation on tutorials is obligatory, 20% of absence can be apologized, -elaborate programs, -pass the written tests, Point classification: 5-20 points. 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 in the interval 100 - 91 90 - 81 80 - 71 70 - 61 60 - 51 50 - 0 ECTS grade A B C D E F Point quantification in the interval 100 - 86 85 - 66 65 - 51 51 - 0 National grading scheme excellent very good satisfactory failed
