Student is able to
- calculate and simulate mathematical expressions
- solve geometric and trigonometric problems
Implementation and methods of teaching
This course has online lectures on Wednesdays at 10am-12am and Thursdays at 2pm -4pm.
The course is structured so that it can be studied at your own pace. It is possible to pass the course just solving exercises but higher grades (3-5) requires enough points from applied test. Applied test can can be only once, but the date can be your own choice (before end of course).
Learning material and recommended literature
All material will be in moodle.
Alternative completion methods
Will be informed at the beginning of the course.
The course consists of contact teaching and individual work. We use the Moodle environment.
- Manipulating expressions
- Linear and quadratic equations
- Pair of equations
- Basic trigonometry
- 2D geometry
- 2D vectors
