During the lecture term, a portfolio of tests will be written (3 tests of 25 min each) which will be used as entry qualification for the final examination. No grades will be given for the tests (pass/fail evaluation). Exercises (lab courses) will help to prepare for these tests.
Tests and final examination will be comprised of text questions related to lecture topics. Students will be evaluated based on their ability to identify and approach the problem and their problem solving skills.
|Textbook & Reference|
Any decent and modern math book or online course on advanced mathematics will do a good job if you feel comfortable with the learning approach and your learning experience. As the concepts are very basic, you can also pick your favourite Mandarin text book.
When it comes to exercises and questions, some knowledge of terminology will be required, so it will be a good idea, to learn about it from an English-language text book. In case you are interested in acquiring a comprehensive book on calculus you might want to look into
