Basics of algebraic calculus.

At the end of this course the students should be able to interpret and formulate problems in Mathematical Analysis and Financial Mathematics and have obtained the mathematical skills that will allow them to extrapolate mathematical problems to economic and social realities.

1. Revision of Algebraic Calculus 2.Functions of a real variable 3. Differential calculus and its applications 4. Numerical succession and applications to Financial Mathematics.

Evaluation Methodology
The same methodology is used both for continuous and exam assessment: 1 sumative closed-book test marked 0-20.
