Condition
The goal Introducing students to the modern computer tools in mathematics (Matlab, Matlab Clone, SAGE, GeoGebra, Python). Solving tasks and discussing some topics in Mathematics 3 using computer tools Matlab, Matlab Clone, SAGE. Modeling selected problems by using GeoGebra and Python. A brief overview of the typesetting system LaTeX that enables easier typing of complex mathematical formulas.
The outcome Lectures and problem sets will train students in the practical skills for writing programs useful for analyzing various problem in mathematics. Through a final project, students will develop their skills for solving mathematical problem of course Mathematics 3 by computer.
Contents

Contents of lectures Introduction to Matlab. Symbolic and numerical computations in Matlab and SAGE. Selected topics of the Mathematics 1, 2 and 3 (single-value and multivariable differential and integral calculus, differential equations, matrices, analytic geometry, complex analysis, Fourier and Laplace transforms) in Matlab, SAGE and GeoGebra. Introduction to LaTeX.
Contents of exercises Through examples, tasks and problems student learns how to apply skills that are learnt through theoretical contents. Especially students are prepared how to solve problems that are occurring in vocational electrotechnical subjects.
