 

Summer 2012: Mathematics II
New:
The inspection of the written examinations is possible on October 23, 2012 in building 02,
room 215, from 2.00 p.m. to 3.30 p.m.
Lectures: Wed 7.30  9.00 a.m. in G03106 and Fri 9.00  11.00 a.m. in G02111
Tutorials:
Ms. Alina Bondarava: Tue 11.00 a.m.  1.00 p.m. in G22A110 and
Ms. Julia Lange: Tue 3.00 p.m.  5.00 p.m. in G22A122
Every student should attend one of the tutorials per week (preferably each week the tutorial starting at the same time, either at 11.15 a.m. or that starting at 3.15 p.m.). It is recommended that the subgroups in both
Tuesday tutorials have approximately the same size.
Recommended textbook:
A textbook that includes all the topics from the lecture is available now (see Reference 1 below).
The use of this textbook is strongly recommended.
Further information about the book can be found
here.
Examinations:
There are twohour written examinations in Mathematics I (February) and Mathematics II (July/August).
As working tools are allowed:
a pocket calculator
a printed collection of formulas (booklet used in mathematics in school, e.g. ' Tafelwerk' in Germany)
EITHER TWO individually prepared ONESIDED sheets of paper (with arbitrary material)
OR textbook `Mathematics of Economics and Business' by Werner and Sotskov
Every student should indicate the chosen variant on the cover sheet of the examination paper (`2' stands for `two pages' and
`B' stands for `book'). Note that the use of a collection of (handwritten or printed) copies of pages (of whatsoever) is NOT allowed.
A selection of old examinations including answers to the problems can be found under
`Lehrmaterial' of the Faculty of Mathematics
within the part `Klausuren'.
Exercises for the tutorials:
Below you find the exercises which should be prepared by every student BEFORE the corresponding tutorial. They are identical with the problems
given at the end of each chapter in the
textbook by Werner and Sotskov. The answers to these problems can be found on pages 486  510 of this textbook
(see Selected Solutions).
