Prerequisites
Arithmetic, algebra, elementary number theory,
elements of mathematical analysis. Number theory 1 (mm1c1se1) is
recommended.
Course objectives
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.
