1. SUBJECT DESCRIPTION

People often think of Mathematics as a collection of different axioms and theorems, which build a

complete theoretical system but have few connections (or no connections at all) with real life

problems. This could be partly due to the technical language used by the “classical”

mathematicians. This practice could hamper communication with people who work in applied fields.

Fortunately enough, this conception of Mathematics, or at least of what we could call “applied

mathematics in social sciences”, has changed over the last decades. This is obvious in areas like

Economy or Business Administration, where many collaborative works between mathematicians

and experts have been reported in these areas. From this new point of view, one has to think of

Mathematics, not as a subject in itself, but as a collection of tools that are needed in any rigorous

and complete analysis of an economic problem.

Students following this course will learn useful tools to analyze an economic problem. However,

there is also a second objective. They will need these tools in order to follow other courses of the

degree.

The objective of this course is to provide the student with part of the quantitative tools required to

analyze economic problems. Regarding its contents, this first course comprises some elementary

topics Calculus of one real variable. In brief, topics covered will include basic algebra, functions of

one variable and derivatives.

We classify the skills in two groups: specific and generic. Regarding the specific skills, the student

will be able to:

To acquire ability with calculus of derivatives of functions of one real variable.

Last revised, August 2015

Regarding the general skills, the student will develop:

To solve the above formal models.

To use the basic tools which are needed in the modern analysis of economic problems.

An inquisitive attitude when developing logical reasoning, being able to tell apart a proof from an

example.

An entrepreneurial and imaginative attitude towards the examples studied.

A critical attitude towards the formal results.

The course lectures will be based on combining theoretical explanations with several practical

exercises. Students should attempt to solve the exercises that will be given to them as homework

in each lecture.

Student participation is considered very important in order to acquire the skills needed to pose and

solve exercises.

All the material will be covered in class, so students should be present and active during the

lectures. It is important for students to take notes during the lessons, as these will be their guides to

study and support the material from the book (see Bibliography).

Every lecture will conclude with homework required for the next class. Although there will not be a

correction of every exercise, those that have posed problems for a non-negligible number of

students will be done during the course. It is highly recommended to do the exercises given as

homework during the course and not to leave them for a date close to the exam. The participation

in class will be evaluated as shown in the table in section 5.

Students are encouraged to work in groups when solving homework problems. But, as evaluation

will be strictly individual, it is highly recommended that each student try, at the same time, to solve

problems by himself.

TEACHING WEIGHTING ESTIMATED TIME A STUDENT

METHODOLOGY SHOULD DEDICATE TO

PREPARE FOR AND

PARTICIPATE IN:

Lectures 32% 15 hours

Exercises 64% 35 hours

Exams 4% 25 hours

TOTAL 100% 75 hours

In order to take the final exam, it is absolutely necessary to have attended classes at least 70%

of the attendance hours.

The level test, the mid-term exam as well as the final exam will be done without cheat

sheets. However, questions could include hints, if they were needed.

Your final grade in the course will be based on both individual and group work of different

characteristics that will be weighted in the following way:

B. Assignments 20%

C. Level quiz 10%

D. Mid-term Exam 20%

E. Final Exam 40%

TOTAL 100%

A. CLASS PARTICIPATION.

It will be worth 10% of the overall grade - students are expected to come prepared and participate

actively (and voluntarily) during lectures. Your class grade (assigned per session) will be based on

attendance, punctuality, participation, and class conduct – there may be a penalty if you create a

disruption, talk excessively, or use electronic devices. Your overall class grade will be obtained by

adding the class grades across all the sessions.

B. ASSIGNMENTS.

They will worth 20% of the overall grade. The assignments could be done both individually or

group, and some of them could require the use of mathematical software and spreadsheets.

C. LEVEL QUIZ.

It will count for 10% of the overall grade. This quiz will comprise TEN multiple-choice questions.

Neither graphical nor programmable calculators are allowed for this Quiz.

D. MIDTERM EXAM

They will count for 20% of the overall grade. This exam will consist of THREE open questions.

Neither graphical nor programmable calculators are allowed for this Quiz.

Notice that the date of the midterm exam could change. This is, the midterm exam date needs to

be considered with flexibility (around session 11). The precise date of the midterm exam will be

communicated to students at least two weeks ahead of time.

E. FINAL EXAM

It is worth 40% of the overall grade. You need to score at least 3.5 on the final exam to pass

the overall course, even if you have already passed the course through the other course

assessments. The final exam will comprise FIVE open questions that will cover the whole subject

(i.e.: Topics 1-4). Neither graphical nor programmable calculators are allowed.

All the students will take a Level Quiz in the fourth session of the course. For those who pass this

quiz, their grades will be used to compute their final grades of "Mathematics I" according to the rule

stated in the above point. Regarding the students fail in passing the Level Quiz, they will be

enrolled in a supporting course on elementary Mathematics (see "Mathematics 0" Syllabus).

Nevertheless, all the students who pass the Level Quiz will have a second chance to improve their

grades at the end of the semester by taking the Final Quiz of "Mathematics 0" that it will be

approximately scheduled for the last week of the semester.

Those students, who fail in passing the course, can take a re-take exam in July. In order to pass

this re-take exam, it is necessary a minimum grade of 5.

RETAKE POLICY

Each student has 4 chances to pass any given course distributed in two consecutive academic

years (regular period and July period).

Students who do not comply with the 70% attendance rule will lose their 1st and 2nd chance, and go

directly to the 3rd one (they will need to enrol again in this course next academic year).

o Students failing the course in the first regular period will have to do a retake in July (except

those not complying with the attendance rules, which are banned from this possibility).

o Dates and location of the July retakes will be posted in advance and will not be changed.

Please take this into consideration when planning your summer.

o The July retakes will consist on a comprehensive exam. The grade will depend only on the

performance in this exam; continuous evaluation over the semester will not be taken into

account. This exam will be designed bearing in mind that the passing grade is 5 and the

maximum grade that can be attained is 8.

o The non-July retakes (this happens in the ordinary period: students in their third attempt).

They should schedule an appointment with the professor during the first two weeks of

classes and commit to a study plan including additional assignments to make up for

attendance and participation. They will have to take the mid-term and final exams and submit

home assignments during the semester.

The grade in the retake in the ordinary period will be the highest one between the two following

options:

o 40% of the grade – course grade you earned through continuous evaluation (quizzes

included); 60% of the grade – retake exam. In order to pass, you need a minimum grade of 5

points in the retake.

o 100% of the grade of your retake exam.

o The maximum grade that a student may obtain in any type of retake will be 8 out of 10.

Students should always have clarity regarding the way they are graded and what is taken

into account when they are being evaluated. It is important to outline the weight for every

type of assessment (class participation, essay, exams).

We strongly urge you not to make any changes to the evaluation criteria once the course has

begun. If changes are necessary, try to involve the students as much as possible, ideally through

the class representatives. It is our experience that students view the course program as a de-facto

contract between professor and students, one that should not be altered unilaterally.

9. CODE OF CONDUCT IN CLASS

1. Be on time: Students arriving more than 5 minutes late will be marked as “Absent”.

Only students that notify in advance in writing that they will be late for a specific session might be

granted an exception (to the discretion of the professor).

2. If applicable, bring your name card and strictly follow the seating chart. It helps faculty

members and fellow students learn your names.

3. Don’t leave the room during the lecture: Students are not allowed to leave the room during

the lecture. If a student leaves the room during the lecture, he/she will not be allowed to re-enter

and, therefore, will be marked as “Absent”.

Only students that notify that they have a special reason to leave the session early will be granted

an exception (to the discretion of the professor).

4. Do not engage in side conversation. As a sign of respect toward the person presenting the

lecture (the teacher as well as a fellow student), side conversations are not allowed. If you have a

question, raise your hand and ask it. It you do not want to ask it during the lecture, feel free to

approach your teacher after class.

If a student is disrupting the flow of the lecture, he/she will be asked to leave the classroom and,

consequently, will be marked as “Absent”.

5. Use your laptop for course-related purposes only. The use of laptops during the lectures

should be authorized by the professor. The use of Facebook, Twitter, or accessing any type of

content not related to the lecture is penalized. The student will be asked to leave the room and,

consequently, will be marked as “Absent”.

the use of phones, tablets, etc. is forbidden inside your classroom. Failing to abide by this rule

entails expulsion from the room and will be counted as one Absence.

7. Escalation policy: 1/3/5. Items 4, 5, and 6 above entail expulsion from the classroom and the

consequent marking of the student as “Absent.” IE University implements an “escalation policy”:

The first time a students is asked to leave the room for disciplinary reasons (as per items 4, 5, and

6 above), the student will incur one absence, the second time it will count as three absences, and

from the third time onward, any expulsion from the classroom due to disciplinary issue will entail 5

absences.
