About this course

The course consists of two parts:

Linear algebra (common teaching with MATH131): Systems of linear equations, Gauss elimination, inverse matrices, determinants, bases, complex numbers, eigenvalues, eigenvectors

Linear differential equations: First - and second order linear ordinary differential equations, selected numerical methods. Introduction to non-linear differential equations.

Learning outcome

Students are to

  1. acquire basic ideas and theorems of the theory
  2. master the standard methods in linear algebra and for the solution of linear differential equations
  3. be able to use this knowledge and these skills when solving simple applied problems
  • The teaching consists of lectures, calculation exercises and weekly practice exercises.
  • An assistant teacher is present during all the exercises lessons. The students can either contact the teacher in his office by telephone or by e-mail.
  • MATH111, MATH112
  • Written examination: 3.5 hours

  • The external and internal examiner jointly prepare the exam questions and the correction manual. The external examiner reviews the internal examiner's examination results by correcting a random sample of candidate's exams as a calibration according to the guidelines of the Faculty for examination markings.
