ML0024 Mathematics for Technical Preparatory Year II 12.0 credits
The overall goal of the course is to give new students enough skills and understanding that is required to be able to follow the mathematical courses that are included in the 3- and 5-year engineering programs.
The courses should also contribute to a good introduction to higher education.

Intended learning outcomes
The overall goal of the course is to give new students enough skills and understanding to be able to follow the mathematical courses that are included in the 3- and 5-year engineering programs. The courses should also contribute to a good introduction to higher education.
On completion of the course, the student should
- be able to use theorems and methods on mathematical problems, also without digital aids, and communicate the mathematical argumentation in writing.
’Mathematical’ refers to the part of the mathematics that is included in the course content.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- TENA - Written examination, 6.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
- TENB - Written examination, 6.0 credits, grading scale: 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
Final grades are based on the total of points from both examinations.
For final grade, it is required that all examination parts are approved.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- 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.
