Teaching language



This course aims to:
1) Consolidate students’ knowledge and basic techniques of real analysis to solve practical problems;
2) Develop students’ skills to handle concepts;
3) Develop student’s independent and analytical reasoning;
4) Develop students’ skills to apply mathematical concepts to the resolution of practical problems;
5) Develop students’ skills to present their reasoning and solutions in a clear and accurate way; Students should be capable of identifying techniques of differential calculation, and should also be capable of correctly applying those techniques.

Teaching methods and learning activities

Theoretical Classes:
Presentation of theoretical concepts, giving special emphasis to geometric interpretations and to their practical application.
The demonstration of theoretical concepts is always made, as long as it helps the understanding. After the presentation of a theoretical concept, the students will do some exercises related to that. Throughout classes, we look for the participation of the students, not only to do exercises, but also to introduce new concepts.

Theoretical-Practical Classes:
Solving exercises that illustrate and clarify the contents studied in theoretical classes.
Practical Classes:
Orientation of the study of this course and clarification of any doubts that might come up with the resolution of the proposed exercises. Division of the class into groups of 3 or 4 students. In each practical class some of the groups will be randomly chosen. Each group will have one of its elements going to solve the problem on the board. This person is also randomly chosen. The exercise will be one of a list of 3 or 4 exercises previously indicated by the teacher.
The participation in these practical classes will be a part of the continuous evaluation of this course.

Eligibility for exams

Regardless of the distributed component evaluation, any student who was not dismissed from frequency and exceeded the absence limit of practical classes (25% of the planned classes) will NOT be allowed to do this course’s exam. Furthermore, each and every student who hasn’t exceeded the absence limit will be allowed to do the exam, regardless of his classification in the distributed component.

Calculation formula of final grade

The final classification will be obtained out of the exam grade and the grade of the evaluation in practical classes, according to the following:
MAX {0.2×P + 0.8×E, E}
P represents the grade of the distributed evaluation of practical classes and E represents the grade of the exam. They both range from 0 to 20. The result will, then, be rounded to units.

Special assessment (TE, DA, ...)

The students that, in 2004/2005, have either the military status or that of working student are dismissed from frequency and from the distributed component.

Classification improvement

Classification improvement is made with a final written exam. Its result represents 100% of the final classification.
