After completing the course the student can:
- solve equations, including radical, exponential and logarithmic equations
- use determinants and matrices
- apply dot and cross products
- perform basic operations on complex numbers
- use relevant mathematical terms and notation correctly
All practical information on timetables, project work, grading etc., as well as links to web materials are provided in Optima

The contents of the course give understanding of the basic mathematics and help students to solve equations, including radical, exponential and logarithmic equations and use determinants and matrices (e.g. for solving linear simultaneous equations), apply dot and cross products (e.g. in games, physics and electrical engineering applications), moreover the students can use relevant mathematical denotation correctly
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
