Introductory Mathematics Course
On 11-15 October 2021, an Introductory Mathematics Course will be offered for first-year physics students, including teacher candidates.
The course covers the mathematical basics of the basic lectures in experimental physics including the physics lab courses. The aim is to bring previous knowledge to a uniform level in order to facilitate the start of studies.
This course is not compulsory. However, it is strongly recommended to attend the course (especially for those who feel unsure in Mathematics).
The course includes lectures and exercises, which can again take place in presence!
The lectures will take place in the morning from 8.15am to 11.45am at:
Lecture Hall H 18 (Building NW II)
The exercises will take place in the afternoon from 1.00pm to 4.00pm in four groups:
Lecture Hall H18 (Building NW II)
Lecture Hall H16 (Building NW II)
Lecture Hall H9 (Building NW I)
Lecture Hall H20 (Building NW II)
Registration is not required. The lecture (not the exercises) will also be broadcast online.
