# Bachelor of Mathematics

# Important websites

The most important page is the main page of the mathematical institute, on which there are also many further links.

In addition to the current examination regulations for mathematics (2015), the list of courses (2015) and the module handbook are interesting.

The courses in **business mathematics **can be found here, as well as the examination regulations.

You can find information on teacher training here.

A detailed and up-to-date course catalog is available here.

For some, however, the Study regulations of 2011 still apply.

The corresponding pages for other PO years are available on the website of the Mathematical Institute

# Mandatory modules

At the beginning, you should attend the compulsory modules, as these form the basis for later studies. Later you can choose almost freely between the others. Mandatory modules are:

Analysis 1,2,3, Linear Algebra 1,2, Numerics, Stochastics, Programming 1, (Exemplary Specializations 1)

Detailed information here.

In the first semester it is advisable to attend Analysis 1, Linear Algebra 1 and the selected minor. You also have to take the corresponding exercise modules.

In **business mathematics**, due to the many compulsory modules, there is a lecture schedule, which is usefully (not compulsory) worked through in the specified order.

Exercise modules

In the lectures Analysis I, II and Linear Algebra I, II practice modules are attached. These are independent of the exam. You can therefore pass the exercise module in a different semester than the corresponding exam. The condition for passing the exercise module is the successful completion of the exercise tasks. However, the exact requirements (e.g. the number of sheets) vary depending on the lecturer and lecture.

Retakes

In the Mathematics Bachelor there is a retake for each of the lectures, which usually takes place at the end of the semester break. However, you must not take this course if you have successfully passed the main exam. A passed exam may only be repeated in the immediately following main exam (exception: GOP) (usually in the following year), the better grade counts. Written exams may be repeated as often as required (exception: GOP).

### GOP:

The exam for the analysis of a variable must be passed either on one of the exam dates in the first semester or in the main exam of the third semester. If you want to take the final exam in the third semester, you must prove that one of the three exams was not passed through no fault of your own (e.g. illness). Otherwise, exmatriculation and a study lock in mathematics follow. Once passed, the GOP may not be repeated.

Note calculation

The final grade is calculated by the average of the grades to be contributed. These are weighted according to the ECTS points. The following grades must be submitted:

1. the three best from Analysis 1 & 2 and Linear Algebra 1 & 2

2. the two best from Analysis 3, stochastics and numerics

3. Exemplary deepening 1

4. The best of programming 1 & 2, exemplary specializations 2 and computer-aided mathematics

5. the three best from the WP6-WP10 and WP14-WP21 modules

6. the grade of the bachelor thesis

These grades are offset against the minor subject grade in a ratio of 5 to 1. The minor subject grade is usually calculated from the arithmetic mean of the individual exams, but can vary depending on the minor subject.

Examination inspection

The lecturers should allow the exam to be viewed. If this does not happen, an inspection can be requested within 6 months after the examination.

According to a regulation from Bologna, everyone has the right to copy or take photos of the documents. This is only possible in justified cases, but it is not enough that the same test should be written again later.

Erasmus

As part of the math degree, it is possible to take part in an exchange

Program with a foreign university. To do this, you have to apply by January 31 for the academic year beginning in September. More information can be found on the Erasmus website.

Others

Internship: an internship of at least 2 weeks, which is related to the content of the mathematics course, can be credited as a WP4 module with 3 ECTS. An internship report is required for this.

The "Kontoauszug" or transscript of records is a document on which all passed modules are listed with grades. You can apply for this at the contact point for students at the LMU and will then receive it after a time. Alternatively, you can request the account statement by email (mathematik.pani.pa@verwaltung.uni-muenchen.de). A certification of the account statement can also be obtained from the contact point.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the GAF, by email at: gaf@fs.lmu.de or in person in room B038.
