|0 + 2||0 + 2||term grade||applied math.||mm1c2em4t||4||recommended|
- Requirements: Two midterm tests, homeworks. The students also have to hand in the detailed soultion of a problem from the mathematical journal for secondary school students, KöMaL.
Syllabus designed by:
Arithmetic, algebra, elementary number theory, elements of mathematical analysis. Number theory 1 (mm1c1se1) is recommended.
In accordance with the Hungarian tradition of mathematical education, which is based on problem solving, for the prototypes of problems of most topics occurring in primary and secondary school mathematics, the elaboration of problem solving strategies (initiating problem solving, developing and deepening) is done. While doing so the reflected application of knowledge from university studies is emphasized. Besides the usual generalization strategy, further variations of the problems are also included.
