Course Aim
The aims of the course are
- to give deeper knowledge and skills in some central mathematical theories and concepts and practical training in independent work in mathematics,
- to give the basis for further studies in mathematics, both in the form of courses and in the form of independent studies in mathematics in subjects where knowledge in mathematics is used,
- to give a deeper insight in such areas of mathematics that are needed for independent application of mathematical tool,
- to give such deeper knowledge that promotes the teaching and learning of mathematics in secondary schools (gymnasium).
