Learning objectives (competencies)

Objectives Competences Taxonomy levels
You become acquainted with the mathematical tools and concepts required for the engineering modules. You familiarize yourself with the mathematical way of thinking and practice your ability to abstract.    
You are able to
- determine whether a transformation is linear.
- derive the transformation matrix of a linear transformation.
- calculate and apply the composition of linear transformations as a product of matrices
- define and apply two and three dimensional compressions, rotations, projections and  reflections.
F, M K2, K3
You are able to
- compute real eigenvalues and eigenvectors of linear transformations and matrices. 
F, M K2, K3
You are able to
-distinguish discrete and continuous random variables

-calculate the expected value, the variance and the standard deviation of continuous random variables.
- apply the probability density function (PDF) and cumulative distribution function (CDF)
