**25
October 2018 ****within the framework of the project «Foreign language competence
development of TSU students», second****-year students of the Faculty of Physics jumped back to their first year
to revise linear algebra. Mathematics is a part and parcel of physics and
physicists will need it in future. To revise the material Vladislava Churuksaeva did a lecture on linear algebra in English.**

The Associate Professor at the Department of Computational Mathematics and Computer Modelling, Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, not only remind the students how to work with matrices but also practiced key terms and expressions used in linear algebra.

*Fortunately, our students understood the
lecturer better than me. Maths is not my cup of tea. At some point I heard the
word non-commutative. I did not know
the word and ask *

**Vladislava**

*to write it on the board. The students did not see the point doing that because they knew the word,*admitted

**Aleksandra Dusheiko**, English teacher.

*It was rather interesting to observe and listen how they were trying to solve the tasks. It was extremely hard. Later, the lecturer realized why it was so hard. She is from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics where students are trained in mathematics very hard, whereas physics students do not focus so much on the discipline. Nevertheless, terms are worth learning and will be useful in future.*

solving the problems. The lecture was also attended by first-year student **Abdalla Altamim**i.
