Objectives and competences

Basic notions in algebra are introduced, which are needed for the subsequent study. Abstract thinking and mathematical rigour are enhanced.
Practical, working knowledge is obtained during exercise classes.

Intended learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding: Knowledge and understanding of basic algebraic concepts.
Application: Application of the theory in solving problems.
Reflection: Understanding of the theory from the applications.
Transferable skills: Ability to transfer the theory into practice.

Learning and teaching methods

Lectures, exercises, consultations

Assessment

Type (examination, oral, coursework, project):
2 midterm exams instead of written exam, written exam
oral exam
grading: 1-5 (fail), 6-10 (pass) (according to the Statute of UL)
