At the beginning of their mathematics studies, many students are confronted with methods and ways of thinking for which they were not prepared at school. While school mathematics is largely visualised, mathematics at the university is characterised by the use of a formal language, precise formulations and strict procedures of proof (axiomatic procedure). The course is designed to facilitate this transition from school to university. In the process, some contents of school mathematics are taken up again and presented in a new way; but also new concepts are considered, which play a role again and again in later studies. The individual topics are alternately presented in a lecture and deepened in small exercise groups through the independent processing of tasks.
