### Assumed knowledge on:

MAT-14903 Mathematics 2.

### Continuation courses:

MAT-23306 Multivariate Mathematics Applied and MAT-24803 Mathematics for Time-dependent Systems.

### Contents:

- systems of linear equations;
- vectors and vector geometry;
- matrices and determinants;
- eigenvalues and eigenvectors;
- functions of two variables.

### Learning outcomes:

After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- use and apply definitions and concepts from linear algebra and calculus in a mathematical or an applied context;
- use and apply mathematical knowledge and methods to solve basic mathematical problems in the life-, environmental and technological sciences using a systematic approach;
- correctly report mathematical reasoning and argumentation;
- critically reflect upon the results by verifying them;
- interpret the results in terms of the problem that was modelled mathematically;
- use mathematical software in elaborating mathematical models.

### Activities:

- before each lesson: extensive preparation by studying the subject matter of the lesson, doing the assigned exercises and formulating questions for the teacher;
- during each lesson: active participation by asking questions and by doing the assigned exercises (possibly in cooperation with other students);
- after each lesson: recapitulation of and reflection on the subject matter of the lesson;
- computer practical (compulsory).

### Examination:

- written test with open questions and/or multiple choice questions, which needs to be passed (contribution to final mark: 100%);
- the practical (attendance compulsory) has to be completed with the grading 'sufficient'.
A sufficient practical result remains valid for a period of six study years.
