Course Catalog 2010-2011
MAT-41297 Measure and Integral Theory, 8 cr
Principles and baselines related to teaching and learning
During the course there are instructed exercises that helps learning. Moodle study platform is used during the course and extra material may be handed out through that there and students may discuss about there problem.
After the completion of the course the student knows the main concepts anf results of the measure and integration theory. The student is capable of defining the main concepts precisely. The student is capable of applying results in calculations and giving justifications for then. The student is able to verify the most important results. The student can apply the concepts and results in advanced studies and applications in the area of analysis and stocastics. The exact mathematical reasoning is emphesized during the course.

Evaluation criteria for the course
The grade of the course is based on the final exam or two partial exams. When the points for the final exam or the partial exams are 30% of the maximum, the grade of the course may be improved by bonus points collected from the instructed exercises and homework. The passing limit is 50% of the maximum. If the student is mastering the concepts, results, short proofs and examples type of problems the evaluation is 3. For the grade 4 the student should in addition to the previous level be able to independently apply theory more. For the grade 5 the student should independently deduce results, invent solutions and compare results more than in the previous levels.
Numerical evaluation scale (1-5) will be used on the course
