Type of course unit: optional (voluntary)
Level of course unit: Bachelor's (1st cycle)
Year of study: 2
Semester: winter
Number of ECTS credits:
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The course makes access to mastering in a wide range of results of algebra.
Mode of delivery:
90 % face-to-face, 10 % distance learning
Linear algebra, general algebra
Not applicable.
Recommended optional programme components:
Not applicable.
Course contents (annotation):
In the course Groups and rings, students are familiarised with selected topics of algebra. The acquired knowledge is a starting point not only for further study of algebra and other mathematical disciplines, but also a necessary assumption for a use of algebraic methods in a practical solving of number of problems.
