The Chair for Algebra and Representation Theory is offering the Mathematical Dialogues Analysis I and Linear Algebra I in the Winter Term 2022/23.

The Mathematical Dialogues are a supplement to the lectures of the first two semesters. Their purpose is to improve the level of understanding of these lectures. Each week, we publish a work sheet which is to be worked on during that week. They cover alternately the contents of the lectures Analysis I and Linear Algebra I, concretize the concepts of those lectures in carefully chosen examples and realize them via the computer algebra system Julia.

The understanding of each work sheet will be checked in short, weakly, oral tests, which are not graded but have to be passed. Hereby we will automatically exercise the use of correct mathematical terminology and presentation skills. Little errors may be corrected in the following test. If a test is not passed, it has to be repeated during the lecture-free period.

In the computer rooms, the are student assistens helping with questions about the worksheets. The exact dates will We strongly encourage students to use these question sessions to get into conversations with other students, to form study groups and to work on the sheets collaboratively.

Further information on the Mathematical Dialogues will be available in RWTHmoodle upon registration in RWTHonline.

Important: Please note that the Mathematical Dialogues Analysis I are part of the module Analysis I. The same holds true for the Mathematical Dialogues Lineare Algebra I. Thus, with regards to the examination regulations the Mathematical Dialogues are independent of the lectures, exercises and exams. It is hence possible to attend and/or pass all module parts seperately. It is therefore necessary to register for multiple courses in RWTHonline at the beginning of the semester (in first semester at least: Exercises Lineare Algebra I, Hands-On Workshops Lineare Algebra I; in third semester at least: Exercises Analysis I, Hands-On Workshops Analysis I, ). We strongly recommend taking the connected courses simultaneously.
