To achieve the learning objectives is necessary knowledge and skills that are supposed to be guaranteed in the training prior to entering the university. In particular, basic knowledge of geometry, algebra and trigonometry, elementary mathematical operations (powers, logarithms, exponentials, fractions, ...), basic knowledge of derivation and integration of real functions of a real variable, and fundamentals of graphical representation of functions.
As in any scientific discipline, in Chemistry, Mathematics is an indispensable tool for the understanding and development of any of its branches. Mathematics is the foundation and origin of modern theories of atomic and molecular structure, they allow to deal with problems of thermochemistry and kinetics with simplicity and elegance, they are present in the approach and development of all experimental chemical, academic and professional activities. The mathematical concepts studied in the Mathematics course provide an essential tool and constitute a precise language that is used by most of the basic subjects. The subject of Mathematics helps to enhance the abstraction, rigor, analysis and synthesis capacities necessary for any other scientific discipline.
