Learning Objectives

Students will acquire the main concepts of mathematical analysis and they will be guided to connect them to concepts learned in other disciplines.

The course has the following objectives:

Knowledge and understanding:students will become familiar with theoretical notions of sets. The set

of real numbers and its structure. At this point students will be able to understand the concept of limit

and justify the main properties of limits, for a real variable functions. They will learn to recognize the

main analytical properties of a function and to study a function. Linear Algebra concepts will be


Applying knowledge and understanding:

: students will not only learn the individual concepts but

they will have to think about structural properties. They can also exercise to use their knowledge. This

will be done throughout classroom exercises homework assignment.

Learning skills:

: students will be led to acquire a method that allows them to recognize what are the

necessary prerequisites.
