Recommended Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of plane geometry, analytical geometry and elementary three-dimensional geometry. Elementary notions of set theory as well as the main properties of the real and complex number systems.

Teaching Methods

Detailed exposition lectures (using audiovisual means) of the concepts, principles and fundamental theories.  Resolution of some practical exercises filling the needed guidelines of the subject. In the tutorials it is intended that the student, under the guidance of teachers, solve practical application exercises.

Learning Outcomes

Concise study of   fundamental topics of linear algebra with some applications to analytic geometry (in R2 and R3). The level of mathematical abstraction used is surpassed due to the presentation of various examples and reference to several applications.
The main purpose of this course is to provide the minimum linear algebra tools that allow the use of this new language in other areas of science.
