Introduction to the mathematics needed for the Creative Technology curriculum


The mathematics component is divided into two tracks. Based on a diagnostic test in week 2 (no preparation needed!) you will be put into one of these two tracks.
A. The mathematics buildup track is meant to help people build up their basic mathematics skills to the starting level required for the mathematics in later modules. After successful completion of this track, you possess the basic mathematics skills sufficiently to enter the mathematics program in the rest of the curriculum. This concerns, among other things, basic arithmetic operations, fractions, factorization, powers, logarithms, equations, functions, and derivation.
B. Those who, at the start of this module, already master the basics of mathematics sufficiently to follow the mathematics in later modules will be taught a selection of various inspiring topics in mathematics.
The track and the selection of topics that you follow in the track may determine the range of grades that can be achieved at the exam. This will be communicated at the start of the course; students have the option to switch tracks in coordination with the responsible teacher.
Manual enrollment via Osiris is only for Creative Technology students. If you want to enroll, please contact K. Zalewska (k.zalewskakurek@utwente.nl).
