Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

The student will obtain the basic orientation in discrete mathematics and linear algebra, and an abitity of an orientation in related mathematical structures.

Learning objectives

The modern conception of the subject yields a fundamental mathematical knowledge which is necessary for a number of related courses. The student will be acquainted with basic facts and knowledge from the set theory, topology and especially the discrete mathematics with focus on the mathematical structures applicable in computer science.

Prerequisite kwnowledge and skills

Secondary school mathematics.
