Gained competencies 
Students are becoming familiar with basic knowledge of linear algebra and competence in their application, such as mastery of basic methods of matrix and vector operations, solving systems of linear equations, application of orthogonalization process.

Exam formats 
The exam consists of oral and written parts of exam. The students can go in for an exam after attending all lectures and after doing all exercises. During one semester there is a possibility for the students to go in for 2 preliminary exams; these exams can replace the written part of the exam.
