Introduction. Second school recapitulation - modification of algebraic expression, basic figures and references, unit convections.
(Necessary to any technical calculations)

3d - 4th week:
Recapitulation of elementary functions with the emphasis on trigonometric functions.
(Load decomposition on simple building construction into the set direction, progression of construction loads in time, beam deformations, catenarian curve - rope construction solutions...)

5th - 6th week:
Solution of equation and not equation systems, comparison of static calculations made "by hand" and using a building software. Matrix arithmetic.
(Solution of statically indeterminate constructions using the method of force or the deformation method, stress tensor, calculation of the dangerous section...)
