Mathematics
Education objectives
Mathematics is a science that underpins all scientific and technological areas, and also the Economics and Social Sciences.
The main objective of the course that now presents itself is to provide a sound basic training in mathematics, balanced in its various aspects, covering the areas of knowledge essential to the development in later cycles (2. And 3. Cycles) of advanced training. It is intended that this training provides the necessary basis for further studies in the area of Mathematics Education or in the area of Applied Mathematics.
As an example of areas in applied mathematics, to develop in later cycles, according to the specific skills of the faculty of the Mathematics Department of the FCT to mention: Actuarial; Algebra and Logic, Numerical Analysis and Differential Equations, Operational Research and Optimization, Probability and Statistics.
Statistics is the art of extracting information. It has applications, among others, market research, design and interpretation of experiences and Financial Mathematics. The Operational Research is aimed at creating models that allow the study of complex systems and optimal use of resources. The Actuarial Science aim to study the risk (life, accident risk, risk in the stock market). Differential Equations and its Numerical treatment are the foundation of modern physics and engineering, are still present in many biological processes and economic.
Algebra and Logic as core areas of mathematics are also largely responsible for the development of information and recent computational techniques.
Mathematics Education aims at training teachers for Basic and Secondary Education.

Evaluation rules
The following modes of evaluation are used with regard to academic qualifications:
- Evaluation based solely on an examination or completion of a final project.
- Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester excluding examination or final project. In these courses students can expect to carry out, for example, laboratory activities, mini-tests, tests, individual or group projects, seminar-related activities, any combination of which will be used to determine the final grade.
- Evaluation based obligatorily on an examination or a final project. In these courses there extists a form of evaluation similar to one of the aformentioned activities in paragraph 2 as well as a form of evaluation based on a final exam.
- Evaluation based on work done throughout the semester with the possibility of foregoing an examination or a final project.
