Student gets the bysic knowledges and skills which are neresary for further studies at VSB-TUO during the course.
Students are able to evaluate the truth value of the logical statement, explain the difference between the basic numeric sets, edit the algebraic expression to describe the properties of functions, their domains, to quantify the functional values of elementary functions in the notable points and draw the graphs of these functions. In addition, the student is able to solve linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric equations and inequalities and to use this skills to solve elementary problems of analytic geometry.
