# Recommended courses

Please check the general information about courses given at the Department of Mathematics before you read this page.

This page is newly constructed, changes and additions will occur.

The groups below consists of courses that usually have non-overlapping schedules. You should however check that this is indeed the case - click on the relevant course, and then on the relevant semester page (Spring 2014, say) and finally click Schedule; the timetables are available from primo December/June. If you want to take a Norwegian language course you should also check the schedule for this.

Normal workload is 30 ECTS per semester. Each course below counts for 10 ECTS.

### Bachelor's level

You should have at least 30 ECTS in calculus and linear algebra to pick any of the courses below. For some courses additional recommended previous courses are stated on the page.
