Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to
- master elementary mathematical models and employ these models on related questions,
- understand mathematical language and formalism so that they can independently study mathematical textbooks and work their way into new subject areas,
- work sensibly with the subjects dealt with in the course and use them in other courses (e.g. Physics, Physical Chemistry, ...).
Graduates are acquainted with the mathematical method to systematically analyze, structure and investigate problems.

Subject of course

Exercises to the subjects of the lecture "Mathematics for Chemists I".

Teaching methods

For the exercises course the students are split into groups of up to 30 participants. In preparation for every exercise unit the students have to work on 8 problems and announce which problems they could solve. In the unit for each problem a student his chosen who explains his/her solution on the blackboard to the group. This solution is discussed within the group, variants of solution, subsequent questions and cross-connections to other topics are also addressed. Several exercises deal with application-oriented problems from chemistry or physics which should further the motivation to study abstract mathematical concepts of the corresponding lecture.

Mode of examination


Additional information

Please do not miss the introductory meeting ("Vorbesprechung")!

Registration for the exercise sessions: after the introductory meeting via TISS.
Please register only for the exercises if you actually wish to join the course, actively participate and obtain a grade at the end.

Exercise sessions in individual groups start in the week 18—22 October 2021, cf. the course homepage.

Examination modalities

The students have to present their solutions to exercises on the blackboard, they have to declare in advance which exercises they could solve, they also should actively participate in the discussion of solutions of other students.

For a positive grade at least 60 % of exercises have to be declared as solved. At least two times during the semester each student has to present his solution of a problem to the group of students and the course instructor. These presentations have to be assessed positively overall, an insufficient presentation can be compensated by a satisfactory one.
