Objectives of the course
The student should be able to solve linear systems, formulate and solve problems of plane geometry, using vector methods and the
knowledge of simple plane figures.
Algebraic calculus and Euclidean geometry. Integer, rational, real numbers. Basic trigonometry.
Complex numbers: notations and foundamental operations.
Outlines on polynomials and algebraic equations.

Plan vectors: opertaions, components, scalar product.

Rn space and its operations. Vectorial subspaces.
Dependence, independence, bases. Matrix and determinants. Operations between
matrix and inverse matrix. Matrix rank, reduction.

Linear systems. Systems solution using reduction.

Analytical plan geometry: representation of a line, angles and distances, circumference. Polar coordinates. Outlines on conic sections
and space analytical geometry (lines and plans).

Laboratories and/or exercises
Practicals include development of exercises studied during lectures.

Mathematical concepts studied at the high school are revised.
