Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Demonstration
Learning outcomes
Vector spaces. Linear combination of vectors. Linear independence of vectors. Base. Vector spaces with inner product. Affine space and subspace. Relative positions of affine subspaces. Pencil and bundle of hyperplanes. Transversals of skew subspaces. Euclidean space. Vector product. Outer product. Distance of subspaces, the volume of simplex, the deviation of subspaces.
A graduate will understand basic terms from Linear algebra and their geometric interpretations within the range of the curriculum of the subject. She will learn to apply matrices and determinants on the investigation of relative positions of point subspaces.
Prerequisites
Knowledge of the basic properties of matrices and determinants. Corresponding computational skills with matrices and determinants. Solving of systems of linear equations skills.

Assessment methods and criteria
Combined exam

Active participation on seminars. Written and oral examination of knowledge in the range of the course.
