MATHEMATICS II

## Competencies and objectives

#### Course context for academic year 2011-12

Como continuación de la asignatura Matemáticas 1 (35002), presenta las herramientas de Cálculo, ahora en varias variables

El núcleo central de la asignatura  es  el estudio de la convexidad y de los modelos y técnicas de optimización matemática aplicados a problemas en el  entorno económico

La asignatura pretende también contribuir al proceso formativo general de los estudiantes  intentando desarrollar  su capacidad de razonamiento abstracto e intuitivo-geométrico

#### Course content (verified by ANECA in official undergraduate and Master’s degrees)

General Competences (CG)

• CG2 : Capacity for team work.
• CG3 : Capacity for self-learning.
• CG4 : Apply professional criteria based on the use of technical instruments to analyse problems.
• CG5 : Capacity to take decisions by applying acquired knowledge to practical situations.
• CG6 : Obtain important information from the data that is impossible for non-professionals to recognise.
• CG8 : Analyse problems using critical reasoning, without prejudices, precisely and rigorously.
• CG9 : Capacity for synthesis.

General Competences acquired at University of Alicante (CGUA)

• CGUA1 : Read and communicate in a foreign language in a professional environment, especially in English.
• CGUA2 : Use computer, I.T. and communications technology tools as a matter of course in all of one's professional activities.
• CGUA3 : Capacity for oral and written communication.

Specific Competences (CE)

• CE1 : Contribute towards the correct management of resource allocation in both the private and public context.
• CE10 : Capacity to apply the knowledge and skills acquired to solve theoretical and applied economic problems.
• CE11 : Analytical skills for developing theoretical frameworks that simplify study of the real economy and the capacity to set appropriate levels of abstraction when studying different economic questions.
• CE12 : Be able to use the appropriate tools for the analysis, diagnosis and solution of economic questions and problems.
• CE3 : Bring a rational approach to the analysis and description of any aspect of economic reality.
• CE4 : Evaluate the consequences of different options for action and select the best one according to the objectives set.
• CE9 : Understand economic institutions as the result and application of theoretical or formal representations of how the economy works.

#### Training objectives

• Use of mathematical language and its application in the representation and interpretation of economic models.
• To develop the ability to use mathematical reasoning and apply it to real situations in the economic world.
• To be able to use computer techniques for problem solving.
• To develop the ability to access the economic information provided by mathematical models.
• To develop the capacity for the analysis and resolution of problems, both individually and in groups.
• Knowledge and use of multivariable calculus tools and their interpretation/application in the economic world.
• To develop the ability to use mathematical optimisation techniques, use of appropriate computer software and its application in the economic world.
