  • About [MAT-10-KPOOL-3]: The study achievement "[U-Schein] proof of successful participation in the exercise classes (ungraded)" must be obtained.

Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: oral examination (20-30 Min.)
  • Examination Frequency: each semester
  • Examination number: 82027 ("Module Exam Pure Mathematics A")
    As far as the module part #B is concerned, it is generally possible to give the module examination PL1 to another courses than the required study achievement (proof of successful participation in the exercise classes). This requires that none of the courses involved has already been included in another module.

Evaluation of grades

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


Contents

A. Algebraic structures:
  • Basic algebraic structures: groups, rings, fields (in particular: symmetric group);
  • Substructures and factor structures (in particular: normal subgroups, isomorphism theorems);
  • principal ideal domains: ℤ, polynomial ring K[t] (in particular: Euclidean algorithm).

B. Pure Mathematics A1:

Introduction to an area of pure mathematics of choice from: Algebra, Differential Equations, Elementary Number Theory, Functional Analysis, Complex Analysis, Measure and Integration Theory, Topology, Vector Analysis or any other area of pure mathematics.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Upon successful completion of this module, the students know and understand the axiomatic methodology of mathematics and the basic structures and methods of algebra. In addition, they have acquired basic knowledge in an area of pure mathematics, building on the knowledge they acquired in the first semester. They have learned to recognise general mathematical structures and to formulate statements about them precisely. Their creativity in dealing with abstract structures was promoted. They have learned to understand mathematical proofs and to independently prove or disprove mathematical statements in simple examples.

In the exercise classes they have acquired a confident, precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and methods from the lectures. Special attention has been paid to learning a logically correct, complete argumentation.
