The course deals with the practical applications of mathematics and its demonstration with examples from the field of biomedical engineering.


Active participation in exercises; excused absence from a maximum of 2 exercises. During the semester, a total of 2 tests are written, from which it is possible to obtain a total of 100 points. The tests are based on questions and problems related to lectured and practiced topics. Participation in the tests is not mandatory. During the semester, you can get a total of 20 bonus points for solving homework. To successfully complete the course, it is necessary to obtain at least 50 points. The rating is based on the ECTS scale.
