Students will have to master the contents taught in the subject of Mathematics in the Bachelor's Degree in Science and Technology.
In particular, they must have achieved:
1. Basic knowledge of geometry, trigonometry, mathematical operations (powers, logarithms, fractions), polynomials, matrices, derivation, integration and graphical representation of functions.
2. Basic instrument handling skills: Basic computer handling (operating system).
Those students who have studied another modality should acquire, during the first weeks of the semester, a sufficient knowledge of the basic mathematical techniques. In this regard, it would be advisable to attend the so-called "Zero Courses" that the Centre will organise during the first four-month period.
The Mining Engineer is the professional who uses the knowledge of the physical and mathematical sciences and engineering techniques to develop his professional activity in aspects such as the search for mining resources, the exploitation of mines, the extraction of elements of economic interest from their original minerals, the control, instrumentation and automation of processes and equipment, as well as the design, construction, operation and maintenance of extractive industrial processes, etc. This training allows him to successfully participate in the different branches that make up mining engineering, to adapt to changes in technology in these areas and, where appropriate, to generate them, thus responding to the needs that arise in the productive and service branches to achieve the welfare of the society to which it is due.
Within the mathematical knowledge necessary to carry out all the above, the methods developed in the subject of Algebra have proven to be the most appropriate for the modern treatment of many disciplines included in the Curriculum. Disciplines that, in the end, will allow the engineer to face the problems that will arise during the course of his career.
Therefore, it is necessary to take this course because it is an essential part of the basic training of a future engineer. Its purpose is to provide students with the basic algebraic resources necessary to follow up on other specific subjects of their degree, so that the student has sufficient algebraic ability and dexterity to solve problems related to engineering and mathematics. In addition, this subject helps to enhance the capacity for abstraction, rigour, analysis and synthesis that are characteristic of mathematics and necessary for any other scientific discipline or branch of engineering.

All training activities will be recoverable, in other words, there must be an alternative evaluation test that allows to reassess the acquisition of the same skills in the ordinary, extraordinary and special call for completion. If exceptionally, the evaluation of any of the training activities cannot be recovered, it must be specified in the description and be expressly authorized by the department.
