Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students have achieved the following learning outcomes:
  • The students know and understand the basic concepts, statements and methods of one-dimensional analysis, and know applications of them in computer science.
  • Based on an outlook, they have developed a basic understanding of the generalization of these concepts to multivariate analysis.
  • They are trained in analytical thinking and their capacity for abstraction has been promoted.
  • Using a structure-oriented approach, they have learned to comprehend mathematical proofs and to independently prove or disprove mathematical statements in simple examples.
  • By working on the given exercises, they have developed a skilled, precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and techniques taught in the lecture.
  • In addition, their abilities to present and to work in a team were promoted.
