Mathematics II

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Mathematics II
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2011
Module code: BIBA270
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
4VU (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 2
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam

BIBA270 (P110-0051) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017 , semester 2, mandatory course
UI-MAT2 (P251-0026) Environmental Technologies, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2023 , semester 2, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 120 hours (equivalent to 4 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 75 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
_ After successfully completing this module, students will be able to apply integration rules and use integral calculus to solve specific problems such as areas, centres of gravity, moments of inertia.
_ They will be able to check linear systems of equations for their solvability and determine solutions those systems. They will be able to solve eigenvalue problems and simple differential equations. They will be able to determine the probability distributions of random variables, as well as calculate expected values and standard deviations.
