Basics of Mathematics

Course aims

Mathematics is essential part of education on technical universities.
It should be considered rather the method in the study of technical
courses than a goal. Thus the goal of mathematics is train logical
reasoning than mere list of mathematical notions, algorithms and
Students should learn how to
analyze problems,
distinguish between important and unimportant,
suggest a method of solution,
verify each step of a method,
generalize achieved results,
analyze correctness of achieved results with respect to given conditions,
apply these methods while solving technical problems,
understand that mathematical methods and theoretical advancements
outreach the field mathematics.
