Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: written exam (Klausur) (90-120 Min.)

Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


Contents

  • differential and integral calculus in one variable,
  • fundamentals of probability theory,
  • statistics: point estimators, confidence intervals, statistical tests, linear models.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The following competencies are to be promoted:
  • Professional competence: confident and independent handling of the terms and statements from the lecture
  • Methodological competence: confident and independent handling of the methods from the lecture
  • Personal competence: independent and critical learning and thinking
  • Social competence: ability to work in a team

Learning outcomes: Upon successful completion of the module, the students will be able

  • to name and reproduce basic mathematical and statistical methods in biology
  • to solve biological questions with the help of the familiar basic concepts of differential and integral calculus, probability theory and statistics.
