## Contents

• Basics: Properties of real numbers, incl. absolute and relative errors; systems of linear equations; sequences and functions;

• Stochastics/statistics: Basic notions; evaluating data with summary statistics, contingency tables, and graphs; Kolmogorow axioms, probability density and cumulative distribution function; Bernoulli, binomial, Poisson and normal distribution incl. parameter estimation; statistical hypothesis testing, incl. tests for normal distribution, chi-squared tests, and sign tests;

• Applied analysis: Application of differentiation and integration, e.g. extrema, propagation of uncertainty, mean value theorems; discrete and continuous growth models, in particular linear, exponential, logistic, and allometric growth; adaptation of a function to a table of values by means of linear regression, also to other function classes.

## Qualification Goals

Students will work on selected relationships from mathematics, gaining confidence in the use of concepts and models necessary for an understanding of the laws of nature and scientific experimentation

The goal is to enable students to use the mathematical skills they have acquired independently as they continue their education

Students should also be able to apply mathematical concepts in the area of inquiry and experimentation in their major.

## Applicability

This module is an export-only module, and can as such only be used in other study programs, not in B.Sc. Mathematics.
