Learning Outcomes

The aim of the course is to give the student the basic mathematical knowledge and skills necessary for engineering studies. The course starts from the very beginning. At the end of the course, the student will master the basics of algebra, geometry, trigonometry and linear algebra.

Student's Workload

The total workload of the course is 135 h, of which 45-60 h of classroom teaching marked in the timetable and the rest of it is student's independent work. Assessment of own learning 1 h.

Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses

The course does not require previous studies.


Whole numbers, their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, fractions and decimals and their calculations, percentage calculations, sets of numbers, powers and roots.

Functions, polynomial and rational functions, exponential and logarithmic functions.

First and second order equation, higher order equation, groups of equations.

Basic geometry and trigonometry, analytical geometry: line, circle and parabola, vectors and their calculations, trigonometric functions and equations, radian, complex numbers.

Determinants and matrices, solving a group of linear equations with determinants and matrices.

Recommended or Required Reading and Other Learning Resources/Tools

Material prepared by the teacher.

Mode of Delivery / Planned Learning Activities and Teaching Methods

The main teaching format of the course is the lectures and the calculation exercises held in connection with them.

In the online implementation: Four exam opportunities per year, date information right at the beginning of the course, physical exams on Palosaari campus.

Assessment Criteria

Grade 1: The student knows the subjects of the course that are necessary for later studies and working life.

Grade 3: The student knows how to make good use of the subjects of the course.

Grade 5: The student can creatively apply the subjects of the course.

Assessment Methods

Exam or midterms (the teacher will inform you the first time), calculation excercise activity.
