The objective of this course is to introduce students to the basics of differential calculus of several variables and mathematical programming, which will be necessary for learning other subjects of the grade and for their future career. The student will understand the basic concepts presented and the results that relate them, and will be able to properly and rigorously apply this knowledge to solving practical problems. An special emphasis will be made on the application of the course contents to economic problems, and on the interpretation of the results.
Another aim is to help students develop generic skills such as analysis and synthesis, logical reasoning, problem solving, critical thinking, independent learning, or retrieving and using information from various sources.
