Learning Outcomes

This course serves as a bridge between secondary education and higher education studies. The purpose of the course is to strengthen students' mathematical skills so that they can successfully handle basic and professional subject studies.

In the course, primary school mathematics is reviewed and calculations are practiced using only a pen and paper. In addition, the most important topics of secondary school mathematics are taught.

The total workload is 135 hours. The total workload is divided as follows: 50 hours of scheduled study and 85 hours of independent work by the student.

Self-assessment of learning: 1 hour.
