Course Information

Course Objectivs

1 One of the main goals is to promote learning of fundamental concepts of Linear Algebra

2 To recall the concept of Functions of Real Variable;

3 To learn the integral calculus in R;

4 The Analysis of Differential Equations

5 We also aim to develop students' achievement by demonstrating theoretical results, as well as, by providing examples and counterexamples of the structures analyzed.

6 We also intend that students are able to investigate conditions where certain results are always valid, and in other cases it does not happen.

7 We also aim to promote analysis and discussion of problems.

Evaluation Criteria

Classification Type: Quantitative (0-20)
Evaluation Methodology: Lectures. Discussion and solving problems, which promotes the active participation of students. Additionally, students are still required to proposed new problems. The evaluation is done through the realization of two tests (50%+50%). Additionally, we encourage the participation of students. The active participation of students can increase the final evaluation up to one mark. In the complimentary period of evaluation, students can recover the lowest classification.
