- Subtraction
- Multiplication
- Division
- Order of Operations

### Section 2: Functions

- Reducing
- Expanding
- Factorizing
- Fractions
- Exponents
- Square Roots

### Section 3: Equations

- Polynomials
- Linear Equations
- Quadratic Equations
- Inequalities

### Learning Outcomes

After successfully completing the e-Math course, students should be able to:

- Develop and apply mathematical theories
- Develop a solid all-round knowledge of mathematics

### Study Level

### Teaching Languages:

### Assesment methods and criteria:

Assessment is based on exercises integrated into each lesson. At the end of the course, to assess students’ understanding of the lessons, students must take a final exam covering all three chapters.

Prior basic knowledge of math (High school mathematics):

- Familiarity with elementary symbolic algebra
- Familiarity with number systems, for instance: the characteristics of natural numbers, integers, real numbers, and rational numbers.
- Prior general knowledge about Inequalities and intervals

The grading is defined as follows:

- 5 (Excellent)
- 4 (Good)
- 3 (Satisfactory)
- 2 (Passable)
- 1 (Fail)
- 0 (Not graded)

**Course Credits**: 5 credits
