As of 09.09.2020:

Due to the Covid-19 situation, we are trying to electronically outsource as much of the course content as possible for you. Therefore, the lecture part is filmed and is always available as a stream. In addition, the script will be supplemented by lecture slides.

The practical part of the course is held in the lecture hall. We therefore plan to conduct both mid-term and final-term exams in the lecture hall.

If this is not possible due to a possible lock-down, the exercise units and the exams will take place in a collaboration session via Moodle. In order to guarantee that you carry out the tests without unauthorized aids, it is imperative that your computer is equipped with a microphone and camera.

You can find more information in the associated Moodle course.

Aims, contents and method of the course

Module objectives: The students understand the basic principles of vectors and vector spaces and can implement the basic arithmetic operations. In addition, they can handle linear combinations and linear mappings and are able to quantify the positional relationships of straight lines and planes. You are familiar with complex numbers, trigonometric functions and solutions of higher-order equations, as well as matrix calculus and the solution of linear systems of equations. You can apply coordinate transformations such as scaling, mirroring, shear, and rotation.
