Degree Programme in Information and Communications Technology
The contents of the course give understanding of the applied mathematics and help students to apply logical rules and notation in e.g. conditional expressions and mathematical proofs, compute and apply permutations and combinations, apply the concepts and properties of divisibility and congruence, calculate the sum of a converging infinite geometric series, find power series for a function and utilize them in numerical computation
and determine coefficients for Fourier-series expansions using mathematical computation tools.
The students will team up for a project work and writing reports on some current and relevant aspect of basic math, which gives everyone an opportunity to understand the topic; all students will develop their mathematical proficiency.
Task-based assessment supports learning and is continuous throughout the course. Studying in an international group develops students’ ability to intercultural communication and multicultural collaboration.
