Mathematical Analysis I
In this curricular unit it is intended that students develop their logical reasoning and calculation skills, essential for the learning of other curricular units of their cycle of studies. The main goals are the learning and consolidation of fundamental knowledge of Differential and Integral Calculus for real functions of a real variable.

Lectures and practical classes for solving exercises.
Continuous Assessment (1st period)
The continuous assessment consists of conducting, during the academic semester, 2 tests T1, T2 and a final exam E. The tests have no minimum grade. The exam has minimum grade of 8.5.
The final grade is calculated as follows: 20%T1+20%T2+60%
If, exceptionally, it is not possible to carry out an assessment in person, there will be the possibility of do the same online followed by an oral exam, but the situation will be analyzed case by case.
Exam Assessment (only 2nd period)
Final exam (100%) (face-to-face and with minimum score of 9.5).
