Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
The course is established as a theoretical introduction to problems of informatics and computer technology. Mathematical logic, foundations of the set theory, graph theory and introduction to the theory of systems are emphasized. Students get acquainted with basic theoretical sciences used in analysis and projecting of software and information systems.
Course content:
Mathematic logic (allowance 10/10)
Propositional logic
Predicate logic

Set theory (allowance 10/12)
Basic terms of set theory
Set operations

3.Graph theory (allowance 6/6)
Basic terms of graph theory
Graph algorithms
Implementation of graphs

Theory to system theory (allowance 2/0)

Assessment methods:
Full-time students receive the credit according to the results of ongoing tests and activity.
There are 3 tests, maximum for each is 10 points, a student needs to get 4 points from each test, and at least 20 points in total from tests and activity.
Students have two repair possibilities (at each of them, 1 test to repair is chosen).

The final exam has two parts: theoretical (10 tasks of 2 points) and practical (8 task of 5 points).
For the successful completion 50 % of each part is needed.

The final evaluation is given by the sum of ongoing tests, activity and exam test:
A (at least 90 points), B (83 points), C (75 points), D (68 points), E (60 points).

Students in combined form of study are not required for credit tests.
Practical tasks for them are included in the exam test, from which 100 points can be obtained.
The final evaluation is given by the same scale as in the full-time form of study.

In the case of fraudulent conduct, student will be graded F and disciplinary proceedings will be initiated.
