The subject Fundamentals of Mathematics 2 has been placed in the curriculum in the second semester of the first year because its knowledge constitute a tool for the better development of further subjects. We will do special emphasis on the most basic fundamentals for a technical development of the next areas of the degree.

The contents of Fundamentals of Mathematics 2 are a useful tool for the better development and understanding of other disciplines. In addition they provide a basic training of mathematical elements which are necessary to the knowledge of the physical models. The first purpose of the subject is the study of the functions of several variables, therefore, to study the surfaces in The space from different points of view, including its graphic visualization with the application of the computational software. To do this, we begin by studying the fundamental elements of differential and integral calculus applied to the functions of several variables and their applications. The second objective is the study and application of differential equations as a tool for modeling phenomena, emphasizing the applications. We complement the subject, on the one hand, with the study of curves and surfaces and their representations, the analytical study of the quadric and, on the other, with an introduction to numerical approximation.
