Foundation Course in Mathematics

The Foundation Course in Mathematics is a free choice subject offered by the Facultad de Informática's Department of Applied Mathematics. This course, designed to help you succeed in the mathematical subjects of this informatics engineering degree course, will be held as three-hour morning sessions every day from 15 September to 3 October 2008.

Experience has shown that our new first-year students find it hard to adapt to the new way of looking at mathematics. We propose to help you to make the transition.

Together we will revise and shift the focus of what you have learned at upper secondary school and introduce some new concepts related to the very language of mathematics. We will also use the UPM's Getting Started and the GeoGebra program as support for the trigonometry and geometry part.

Although you might not like the idea of revising mathematics in September, we assure you that, in view of the results achieved by your fellow students in previous years, it is well worth the effort.
