Learning Outcomes
1. Develop algebraic skills and use algorithmic techniques essential for the study of aspects such as matrix algebra, vector spaces, systems of linear equation, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, orthogonality and diagonalization. 2. Develop spatial reasoning and utilize geometric properties and strategies to model and solve problems as well as view the solution in R2 and R3 and conceptually extend these results to higher dimensions 3. Construct mathematical arguments and understand proofs and concepts that involve elements of introductory linear algebra. 4. Be aware of computational packages and programming languages, where appropriate, that would facilitate them in solving problems and presenting the related solutions. 5. Communicate linear algebra statements, ideas and results, both verbally and in writing, with the correct use of mathematical definitions, terminology and notation.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
