Preparatory Courses Mathematics

The course has three objectives:

  • Improving computational reliability
  • Increasing the speed of calculation
  • Closing knowledge gaps

For this purpose, you have the opportunity to solve tasks online via the BigBlueButton video conferencing system for up to five hours a day in small groups under the guidance of a student tutor as far as possible without a calculator. No special preparation is required. To participate, you will need your user ID, the so-called y-number, of the TU Braunschweig, which you received automatically with your enrolment.

Pre-course in mathematics for first-year physics students

At the beginning of the winter semester, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Physics offers a mathematics pre-course for first-year students of physics (1-subject Bachelor Physics / 2-subject Bachelor with physics as first or second subject), which is intended to refresh and extend important mathematical school knowledge. The aim of the course, which is supplemented by exercises, is to give the students a mathematical "toolbox" with which the typical physical problems can be mathematically developed during the first semester.

Further information


By calculating tasks, the school material is systematically practised up to the Abitur. The material is somewhat more extensive than in the usual face-to-face pre-course before the start of the winter semester. Participants set their own pace, can take breaks as they wish and have many opportunities for control.

The online maths course is divided into two sections that can be completed independently of each other - but also one after the other. If questions arise, tutors can be reached online (Skype), by phone or email.
