Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2015-16

The contribution of the course of Mathematics I to the professional profile of the title is based on the following aspects:


-  The course of  Mathematics I belongs to the part of the core courses of first year, which has as main objective to develop the capacity of solving simple math problems that may arise in engineering. This basic character of the subject gives a key role in training future engineers.


-  The course of  Mathematics I is directly related to the vast majority of the subjects of the degree.

Specific objectives stated by the academic staff for academic year 2015-16

1) Understand the theoretical and practical concepts related to functions of several variables: limits, continuity, partial derivatives, differentiability, chain rule, directional derivative, gradients and related ends, the basic concepts associated with multiple integration: iterated integral, area, volume, polar coordinates, triple integrals, cylindrical and spherical coordinates, change of variable; know how to manage different types of differential equations: separable variables, homogeneous, reducible to homogeneous, linear, Bernoulli, Ricati, exact differentials, integrating factors, Lagrange , Clairut. 2) Ability to solve basic math problems with initiative and skill, which allows small to address specific problems to the specialty applied successfully using mathematical tools learned.
