MOOC can be participated according to a time table provided by the course organizer. This way students can easily interact via e-learning environment while studying various topics. Naturally MOOC can also be studied by student's own schedule.

Matrix algebra MOOC requires no previous studies on university mathematics. High school math on vector calculus (course MAA5 on Finnish curriculum) or similar knowledge is sufficient prerequisite. In this course you learn to present and solve linear equations with matrix notations, perform basic arithmetical operations with matrixes, and matrix decompositions and their use in various applications.

The course will be held in Finnish.
