# Mathematics courses

The courses are aimed at first-year students on economics and social science courses. The aim is to refresh the mathematical content from the Abitur and thus make it easier to start studying. Special attention is paid to the mathematical challenges of the first two semesters. The focus of the content varies depending on the department. It is not necessary to register for the respective bridge course. There is an accompanying Moodle course for both courses on Open.UP.  The registration code is: wiso
