Vacation courses at the Department of Mathematics

Our offer

Deepen your knowledge, review the material, clarify questions - the vacation courses are ideal for all those who want to prepare for exams during the semester break or need an introduction to software for mathematicians. Vacation courses are an additional offer that we finance from study grants. They are not mandatory.

There are one-day revision courses for some larger Bachelor lectures shortly before the respective exam. The courses repeat the material already taught and supplement your exam preparations. Depending on demand, we also offer 2- to 4-day courses before the respective review exams. With regard to the oral exam Mathematical Foundations, there is a 3-day preparatory course that familiarizes you with the exam procedure. In addition, we offer introductions to software such as LaTeX or tools in the field of optimization.

Three-day course: Mathematical Foundations

Please note that this course in held in German. 

Für viele Studierende stellt die Grundlagenprüfung (MA0007), da sie mündlich abgehalten wird, eine völlig neue Situation dar. Ziel dieses Kurses ist es, auf die dadurch entstehenden Herausforderungen so gut wie möglich vorzubereiten und ferner auch die wichtigsten Inhalte aus der Analysis und der linearen Algebra zu wiederholen.
