Contents

Linear algebra:

  • Vector spaces and linear maps
  • Matrices and linear systems of equations
  • Determinants and eigenvalues
  • Scalar product, orthogonality
  • geometrical aspects of linear algebra

Qualification Goals

Technical skills: The students

  • are able to master basic principles of linear and algebraic structures and apply them to simple mathematical questions,
  • acquire the basic mathematical knowledge, which is the basis for the entire course of study.

Soft skills: The students should

  • practice mathematical working methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of abstraction, understanding of the strict axiomatic structure of mathematical areas on a (comparatively) simple structure),
  • improve their oral communication skills in the recitation class by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion.

Prerequisites

None. The competences taught in the following module are recommended: Foundations of Mathematics.
