Study plan Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics

Basic skills

  • Students must have and understand knowledge of an area of study built on the basis of general secondary education, and while it relies on some advanced textbooks it also includes some aspects coming from the forefront of its field of study.
  • Students must be capable of applying their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and they should have building arguments and problem resolution skills within their area of study.
  • Students must be capable of collecting and interpreting relevant data (usually within their area of study) in order to make statements that reflect social, scientific or ethical relevant issues.
  • Students must be capable of communicating information, ideas, problems and solutions to both specialised and non-specialised audiences.
  • Students must develop the necessary learning skills to undertake further training with a high degree of autonomy.

Specific skills

  • Use computer applications for statistical analysis, numeric and symbolic calculus, graphic display, optimisation or other purposes to experiment with Mathematics and solve problems.
  • When faced with real situations of a medium level of complexity, request and analyse relevant data and information, propose and validate models using the adequate mathematical tools in order to draw final conclusions
  • Recognise the presence of Mathematics in other disciplines.
  • Identify the essential ideas of the demonstrations of certain basic theorems and know how to adapt them to obtain other results.
  • Formulate hypotheses and devise strategies to confirm or reject them. Distinguish, when faced with a problem or situation, what is substantial from what is purely chance or circumstantial.
  • Demonstrate a high capacity for abstraction. Understand and use mathematical language.
  • Calculate and reproduce certain mathematical routines and processes with agility.
  • Assimilate the definition of new mathematical objects, relate them with other contents and deduce their properties.

Transversal skills

  • Effectively use bibliographies and electronic resources to obtain information.
  • Actively demonstrate high concern for quality when defending or presenting the conclusions of one’s work.
  • Apply critical spirit and thoroughness to validate or reject both one’s own arguments and those of others.
  • Work in teams.
