Implementation and methods of teaching
This is an online version of Tekniikan matematiikka 1. The course can studied at own pace, although there are scheduled lectures available. The number of lectures is less than in contact teaching.
The course can be studied during the autumn but lectures are after autumn break.
Learning material and recommended literature
All material is available in moodle.
The course is studied with material in moodle.
