Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Theoretical knowledge, examples of solutions and applications of tasks are presented in lectures. Seminars are used to practise selected tasks and their applications. Students can study from recommended literature, which will be available in LMS Moodle.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Students take two tests during the semester. During both tests computer with suitable mathematical software is available. Students can gain up to 15 points from each test. The condition for recognizing both tests is to get at least 8 points from each of them. As long as students have satisfactory result on both tests and do not have an unexcused absence they will able to take final exam. If any of the tests is unsatisfactory and it is not retaken during the semester, student has to retake this test. Finally, each student has to take an exam. This exam has written part (for up to 50 points) and oral part (for up to 20 points). Classification is made using ECTS scale.
