Basic knowledge of foundations of mathematics and mathematical logic.

Knowledge and understanding:

Understanding of logical foundations of mathematics and the fundamental limitations of the axiomatic method.

Application:

Logic, being the foundation of mathematics, provides the means for communication and methodology in mathematics.

Reflection:

The fact that there are mathematical problems without solutions invites a thorough reconsideration of the nature of mathematics.

Transferable skills:

Ability to formally express mathematical content. Ability to perform meta-mathematical analysis.

Lectures, exercises, homeworks, consultations

2 midterm exams instead of written exam, written exam

Oral exam

grading: 5 (fail), 6-10 (pass) (according to the Statute of UL)
