Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • are able to explain important notions, results and theories connected to a central mathematical subject area

Skills

  • are able to apply a number of methods and tools from a specific mathematical subject area
  • can assess whether a specific result is valid and/or whether a specific method can be applied under prescribed circumstances
  • are able to form a mathematical model describing a problem amenable to a mathematical investigation and to perform a mathematical analysis that sheds light on the initiating problem
  • can independently select adequate mathematical methods and tools that help treating certain questions amenable to a mathematical investigation
  • are able to ponder about the applicability range of mathematical tools

Competences
