Students will learn basic mathematical concepts from the areas of predictive logic, sets and figures and
be able to use them confidently when formulating mathematical statements.
Students will be able to reproduce basic formulas from the field of combinatorics and use these to develop solutions
for combinatoric problems.
They will be capable of explaining the mathematical proof concepts of direct proof, indirect proof and complete induction and thus,
come up with new evidence.
They will be able to enumerate the axioms of the algebraic structures group, ring and field and
check the corresponding properties for structures with given operations.
Students will learn the terms and statements of group theory and be able to identify them in examples of groups,
such as (Z/mZ, +) and ((Z/pZ)\{0}, *).
They will be able to explain vector space axioms and demonstrate them in Euclidean space.
Students will be able to develop solutions in Euclidean space for geometrical problems using vector algebra, the dot product,
the vector product and the triple product.
They will be able to explain basic concepts of the theory of n-dimensional vector spaces.
They will have mastered elementary matrix calculation rules and determinant calculation rules and learn how linear images
can be represented and handled using matrices.
Students will be able to demonstrate how to solve a linear system and learn to master the Gauss algorithm
as a method for solving linear systems.
Finally, students will gain an insight into the manifold applications of mathematics in computer science (the development of programming languages,
program verification, digital technology, computing accuracy on computers, cryptography, computer graphics_).

Lecture. An exercise sheet will be distributed every week and then discussed in small groups the following week. In addition, a tutorial will be available for work in small groups. This is voluntary. In the tutorials, students will be able work on exercises themselves (with support from the tutor, if necessary) and ask questions about the lecture material. The tutorial can also be used to fill knowledge gaps.
