## Content and learning outcomes

### Course contents

Complex numbers

Differential equations and their application

The foundations of probability theory

Different probability distributions

Point and interval estimations

### Intended learning outcomes

To enhance the mathematical skills from Mathematics 1 and thus build  sound foundations for further studies in the courses of the program. To give basic knowledges in the fields of mathematical statistics, probability theory, differential equations and complex numbers.

After the course the student should be able to

. use the fundamental concepts of mathematical statistics, probability theory, differential equations and complex numbers.

. write mathematical texts using notations connected to these fundamental concepts.

. set up models  expressed in terms of the fundamental concepts.

. use classical methods of problem solving in these fields of mathematics.

## Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

### Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

### Examination

• TEN1 - Examination, 3,5 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
• TEN2 - Examination, 4,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

### Other requirements for final grade

Written examination (TEN1, 3.5 credits), grading scale A-F

Written examination (TEN2, 4 credits), grading scale A-F

The final grade is based on both requirements. Grading scale A-F.

### Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

No information inserted

### Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination

### Ethical approach

• All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
• In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
• In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
