5. Program of discipline

Description of academic discipline, its goals, subject of study and learning outcomes

The aims of this course are to gain the knowledge about system and its behavior so that a person can transform the physical behavior of a system into a mathematical model that can in turn transform into a efficient algorithm for simulation purpose.

The place of academic discipline in the structural and logical scheme of study according to the educational program

Prerequisites. List of disciplines, or knowledge and skills, possession of which students needed (training requirements) for successful discipline assimilation

Probability theory and mathematical statistics
Digital communication systems

6. Policies and assessment process of the academic discipline

Assessment methods and rating system of learning results assessment

Based on the material of each of the two modules, electronic testing is conducted in an electronic training course on the distance learning server dl.tntu.edu.ua. For each of the tests (20 questions) you can get a maximum of 20 points.
Each performed laboratory work is estimated at a maximum of 5 points.

Table of assessment scores:

Assessment scale
(100 points)
(4 points)
90-100 Excellent А
82-89 Good B
75-81 C
67-74 Fair D
60-66 E
35-59 Poor FX
1-34 F
