The first year of a bachelor’s degree emphasizes the phenomenology of classical physics during students’ foundational education in mathematics and physics. This also serves the purpose of bringing students from different backgrounds onto the same level. Following modules are compulsory modules (CM) in the respective program options (BSc180, BSc150, BSc120):
- The requirement of MAT 142 Linear Algebra II for physics students can also be fulfilled with MAT112 Linear Algebra II. Students with a minor in Mathematics or taking Mathematics as their second teaching subject (regarding the Teaching Diploma for Upper Secondary Schools) must take MAT112.
- MAT 142 Linear Algebra II for physics students is only a compulsory module for students who started in autumn 18 or later.
- MAT 111 Linear Algebra I is only a compulsory module for students who started in autumn 20 or later, it replaces linear Algebra for natural scientists (MAT 141)
- Students, who transferred to the UZH from a different university and had not passed lectures in Linear Algebra and/or Analysis, are considered to be repeating the compulsory modules MAT121, MAT122 and MAT141 (and MAT111, MAT112 Linear Algebra I & II).
