SF1660 Project in Mathematics I 1.5 credits

Matematikprojekt I

Offering and execution

Course offering missing for current semester as well as for previous and coming semesters

Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Simple applications of basic linear algebra and differential and integral calculus. This may include, for example, applications of linear equations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, linear differential equations with constant coefficients, optimization, integral calculus or basic vector analysis. The exact contents may vary.

Intended learning outcomes *

The purpose of this course is to give opportunity for the students to apply their basic mathematical skills in an applications oriented project. After the course the student should be able to:

  • explain how some basic concepts and methods from linear algebra and differential and integral calculus can be used in simple applications close to the education programme,
  • set up, discuss and evaluate some mathematical models for applied processes that are relevant to the education programme,
  • understand basic applications which are presented in mathematical language, and give oral and written presentation of own mathematical calculations and results.

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.
