Math101, 2019 autumn

Introduction

Have you always been struggling to understand mathematics or have you never got the necessary routine to carry out basic mathematical manipulations? This is your opportunity to change that. Math101 is an activity you should consider, if you are determined to improve your basic mathematical skills that are required by the mathematical courses on your first year of study.

Maybe you are in doubt whether the activity is aimed at you. To find out, you can take this test, which you should be able to complete without the use of any aids and only with a few or no mistakes. The answers can be found here. If you had more than a couple of mistakes, or used more than two hours to complete the test, and are you determined to work with your basic mathematical skills, then you should consider following the Math101 activity. If you need another test, you can find one here. It is a bit more difficult and without answers.

Math101 is planed so that students with both A and B level from high school can attend. The activity consists of 9 sessions for all participants. In Aalborg, Math101 is available in Danish, whereas it is available in English in Esbjerg and Copenhagen. Part of the course material in Aalborg, however, will also be in English.

Course material

In Aalborg, the course material is found at the corresponding Moodle page.
