Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Learning objectives


  • are able to explain important notions, results and theories connected to a central mathematical subject area
  • can relate such results to application(s) outside the subject area


  • 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


  • are able to navigate and to develop independently in work situations that are not structured beforehand
  • can participate in collaboration with peers in the treatment of problems of a mathematical nature
  • can communicate mathematical problems and strategies leading to solutions to peers inside and outside of mathematics
