Abstract

The goal of the course Mathematics and Statistics is to study basic concepts of algebra, geometry, analysis, probability theory and mathematical statistics at the level that would allow students to solve applied problems that require the use of mathematical apparatus. The course materials can be used for the further study and application of methods aimed at solving problems from different fields of knowledge, for the definition and study of mathematical models for such problems. This discipline will allow the students of the Department of Applied Political Science to study the mathematical and statistical components of their professional education.

Assessment Elements

Assessment Elements

  • non-blocking Test 1
    The test is carried out in the classroom, in writing, 80 minutes. In the case of a distance learning format, control work is carried out remotely. In the latter case, it can consist of two parts - written (extracurricular) and oral (classroom, including online).
  • non-blocking Test 2
    The test is carried out in the classroom, in writing, 80 minutes. In the case of a distance learning format, control work is carried out remotely. In the latter case, it can consist of two parts - written (extracurricular) and oral (classroom, including online).
  • non-blocking Classroom work 1
    Classroom work is an aggregate indicator that includes the evaluation of students' work during practical seminars, scores for individual homework, and short quizzes in the classroom
  • non-blocking Classroom work 2
    Classroom work is an aggregate indicator that includes the evaluation of students' work during practical seminars, scores for individual homework, and short quizzes in the classroom
  • non-blocking Classroom work 3
    Classroom work is an aggregate indicator that includes the evaluation of students' work during practical seminars, scores for individual homework, and short quizzes in the classroom
  • non-blocking Exam
    The test is carried out in the classroom, in writing, 80 minutes. In the case of a distance learning format, control work is carried out remotely. In the latter case, it can consist of two parts - written (extracurricular) and oral (classroom, including online). A student is eligible for credit for the final cumulative grade as a final summative grade if all tests are graded 8, 9, or 10.
