Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Subject Effective Computer Usage aims to especially to acquaint students with the problem solving in mathematics on your personal computer to facilitate their study of mathematics and physics, and the correct form of written and presentational speech during the study and for the final work. Upon completion, students will be able to use a personal computer as an assistant in the execution of the study and writing tasks such as protocols, laboratory work and works bachelor's or master's at a very good level consistent with the requirements of this type of publication.

Summary

The Effective Computers Usage course is recommended for students of first semester on Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computers Science. The course consists of the following blocks: operating system Windows, Mathcad, Matlab, text editors (Word), spreadsheet programs (Excel), computer graphics, search information on the Internet or presentation (Power Point). The students learn how to use computer for their study and especially solve matematical problems in different software environment. They are learn how correctly write and presentation their final works.
