Basic Mathematics 1 is a first semester subject of the first course of the degree. This subject is focused on Differential and Integral Calculus of Single Variable Real Functions, Algebra of Matrices, and Geometry from an analytic viewpoint. This subject provides some mathematical tools which will be useful in the development of other disciplines. Besides, Basic Mathematics 1 provides the necessary background students need to master before they are ready for the second semester subject Basic Mathematics 2.

The course is split into two modules. The first one will extend knowledge of differential and integral calculus from school. The main objective of the first module is the use of the former topics in some applications. For example, applications of the derivative as a rate of change and the use of integral calculus to calculate areas and volumes. The notions of derivative and integral, and their applications, are essential tools whose calculation can be done making use of some computational software.
The second module is devoted to algebra of matrices and analytic geometry, topics that will allow the students to have a better development in other disciplines of the degree. The analytic and practice treatment of the contents is complemented with the use of some computational software, which will lead students to a better learning and application of the topics of the course.
