Lecturer
- Luís Miguel Merca Fernandes

Prerequisites
Not applicable.

Objectives
a)- Provide the mathematical foundations required in other modules of the programme.

b)- Provide skills to work with differential and integral calculus of functions of one real variable.

Program
1- Preliminaries.
2- Real functions of a real variable.
3- Limits and continuity.
4- Differential calculus.
5- Integral calculus.

Evaluation Methodology
Continuous assessment:
Continuous assessment consists of two written tests. Each of these tests is graded from 0 to 10 points. The student is exempted from exam, i.e. if he/she has at least 3 marks in each test and obtains a classification higher than or equal to 10 marks, resulting from the sum of the 2 tests.

Exam-based assessment:
If the student has been admitted to an examination, or has been exempted but wishes to improve his classification, he can take the first attempt examination - a written test (graded from 0 to 20 points) on all the subject matter taught. A minimum mark of 10/20 is required to pass.
If the student fails the examination he can apply for resit - a test similar to that of firt attempt.

NOTE:
For any of the assessments, if the student obtains a mark equal to or higher than 17/20 he/she will have to take an extraordinary assessment.
