Repetition of Mathematics 1 is intended for students who, for whatever reasons,
fail the exam of Mathematics I and are interested in passing this exam. Its content essentially coincides with the content of the course Mathematics I. The aim is to enable better understanding of mathematics by the solving of concrete examples and problems. Repetition will focus on the practical part of the exam and they will be solved examples matching the written part of the exam.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Goals and competence

Mathematics is an 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 analyse problems,
distinguish between important and unimportant,
suggest a method of solution,
verify each step of a method,
generalize achieved results,
analyse 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.
