### Contents:

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

### Learning outcomes:

After this course, the student is expected to:
- have working knowledge of basic concepts, methods and techniques from linear algebra and calculus;
- be able to apply mathematical knowledge, insights and methods to solve basic problems in the life-, environmental and technological sciences using a systematic approach;
- be able to critically reflect upon the results;
- be able to interpret the results in terms of the problem that was modelled mathematically;
- be able to 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;
