Examination achievement PL1

  • Form of examination: combination of talk and written elaboration
  • Examination Frequency: Examination only within the course
    The module examination consists of a written paper and an oral presentation (30-90 minutes).

    The scope and duration of processing for the written paper and the criteria for determining the grade for the module examination will be announced by the lecturers at the beginning of the course.

Evaluation of grades

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


Mathematics in longitudinal sections (historical) and/or in cross-sections (in terms of content):

Individual mathematical subject areas are presented in an exemplary manner in their genesis and/or in a compact overview with reference to current developments and practical relevance as a living, further developing science. In particular, the following are clarified:

  • the effect of external influences,
  • the role of individuals and groups,
  • the value of taking wrong paths,
  • the connection of current questions/problems and school mathematics.

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The students
  • can reproduce the genesis of mathematical concepts;
  • understand why a mathematical field has developed as it is today, which external influences have effects and that mathematics is made by people;
  • recognise that the axiomatic structure of mathematical theories usually does not correctly reflect their genesis;
  • know, for example, a current mathematical field of research, its practical relevance and its relation to school mathematics.


Literature will be announced in the lecture.


Exercise material will be provided.
