`It is recommendable to have completed the third year of the Bachelor degree in Mathematics`

```
The objectives of this subject are:
- To introduce the future graduates with important results of Mathematics that are not covered in other courses of the Degree.
- As a complement to the standard teaching, the students will get used to scientific talks.
- To give an updated view of mathematics.
-To learn to write mathematical works, both for its content and presentation. Learn to make good scientific exhibitions.
```

` `

- Actively demonstrate high concern for quality when defending or presenting the conclusions of one’s work.
- Assimilate the definition of new mathematical objects, relate them with other contents and deduce their properties.
- Effectively use bibliographies and electronic resources to obtain information.
- Identify the essential ideas of the demonstrations of certain basic theorems and know how to adapt them to obtain other results.
- 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 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.

- Actively demonstrate high concern for quality when defending or presenting the conclusions of one’s work.
- Devise mathematical strategies and objectives when faced with new problems or challenges from different fields of mathematics or from science and society in general.
- Differentiate the different stages of formation of the main areas of mathematics (algebra, arithmetic, analysis, geometry, etc.) and know how to discuss the relevance of this grouping.
- Effectively use bibliographies and electronic resources to obtain information.
- Read advanced mathematics textbooks in English.
- 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 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.
- Understand the essence of an informative but specialised conference on mathematics.

`The content will vary annually depending on the teachers involved. The different areas of mathematics will be represented in a balanced way`

```
The two hours per week will be devoted to mini-courses taught by the teaching team of the subject.
Each student will present an essay on one of the mini courses that will be supervised and delivered to the corresponding teacher. The students will also deliver a set of exercises and will have an oral exam with the coordinator of the subject.
```

Title | Hours | ECTS | Learning Outcomes |
---|---|---|---|

Type: Directed | |||

Attending to the talks | 60 | 2.4 | |

Type: Autonomous | |||

Personal Work | 90 | 3.6 |

```
The evaluation of the subject is structured in the following way:
Class attendance is mandatory and in any case must be greater than 80%
Each lecturer will evaluate the work of the students that he/she has supervised taking into account: a) comprehension of the content, b) proof of some results and possible extension of the topic,
```

c) Quality of the writing and d) presentation of the work.
At the end of the course, the coordinator of the subject will assign a topic to each student who will make a short presentation and answer questions. There will be also a short oral exam.

Title | Weighting | Hours | ECTS | Learning Outcomes |
