Course objectives
Understanding of parts of mathematics that can be used for the description and modeling of real-world problems and finding their solutions. Acquiring the desired level of knowledge necessary for applying mathematics to other sciences and for the ability to self-study in the literature.

Teaching methods
Standard lecture complemented with an exercise to teach students needed computational skills.
Assessment methods
Completion is firstly based on two tests written during the semester. It is required to obtain at least 50% of points in each test. The exam is written. It is necessary to obtain at least 50% of points from the total amount of the written exam.
Any copying, recording or taking out the tests, use of unauthorized devices and means of communication or other distortions of test objectivity will be considered a failure in the course and a gross violation of study regulations. Consequently, the teacher closes the test (credit) score in IS by grade "F" and Dean initiates disciplinary proceedings.
