Many students, especially when they study subjects that are not related to mathematics, have problems understanding how mathematics works. Therefore, I am planning a mathematics lecture especially for teacher students of computer science, which should on the one hand enable students to read and understand mathematical literature and on the other hand teach the use of mathematical methods in the field of computer science. As a tool Snap! and some libraries in the form of sprites will be used, both to illustrate mathematical relationships and to develop problem solutions using mathematical methods. The blocks developed for this purpose come from the fields of sets, linear algebra, graph theory and statistics. In the talk some examples will be shown directly in Snap!
