Prerequisites
Not applicable.

Objectives
a) Provide students with the basic foundations of mathematical methods normally used by the various curricular units of the Degree in Chemical Technology course.
b) Give students the ability to use the concepts and methods of differential and integral calculus of real functions of a real variable.
The proposed program was elaborated taking as a reference base the knowledge acquired by the students, in the courses that precede their entry into this Degree.
