There are no prerequisites. Nevertheless, in the development of the subject it is assumed that the contents of *Càlcul I* have been assimilated.

This course is the natural continuation of *Càlcul I*. It develops the basic tools of calculus with a real variable and focuses on integration, numerical series and functional series. A first introduction to complex functions is also included.

- Develop strategies for analysis, synthesis and communication that allow the concepts of physics to be transmitted in educational and dissemination-based contexts
- Use critical reasoning, show analytical skills, correctly use technical language and develop logical arguments
- Use mathematics to describe the physical world, selecting appropriate tools, building appropriate models, interpreting and comparing results critically with experimentation and observation

- Argue with logical rigor.
- Break down a periodic function into Fourier series.
- Calculate integrals analytically.
- Determine the convergence of improper integrals.
- Determine the convergence of numerical series.
- Determine the radius of convergence for a power series.
- Express definitions and theorems rigorously.
- Transmit orally and in writing, in a clear manner, the logical-mathematical reasoning that leads to problem resolution.
- Use critical reasoning, show analytical skills, correctly use technical language and develop logical arguments

**Theory classes:** exposition of the theoretical body of the subject.**Practical classes:** active discussion of the resolution of some problems from the list previously delivered to the students and some guidance for the resolution of the rest.

**Annotation**: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

Final Exam | 45% | 3 | 0.12 | 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 |

Midterm Exam | 45% | 3 | 0.12 | 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9 |

Re-evaluation | 90% | 3 | 0.12 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 |

Take-home exercises | 10% | 0 | 0 | 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 |

**Take-home exercices (10% of the final grade):** a problem set will be proposed during the semester that has to be solved individually or in group and delivered within the established term. This qualification can not be improved in the re-evaluation.

**First and second term tests (45% + 45% of the final grade):** will be taken at the middle and at the end of the semester respectively.

**Re-evaluation:** no mimimum grade required; it covers all the topics of the course (it will not be possible to be evaluated only on a part of the content). It is mandatory to have taken the midterm and final exam. Participation to improve the final mark is possible.

**Non assessable:** the student who has not carried out evaluation activities accounting for 50% of the final grade will be rated as non-assessable.

**Single assessement**

The students that opted for single assessement evaluation will have to perform a final evaluation that will first consist of a test of the whole syllabus. This test will takeplace on the same date, time and place as the second term test of the continuous assessment modality. Besides, beforethe exam, the student will deliver 1 document with resolved problems of a problem set proposed at an earlier date.

For the mark, 90% of the final mark will come from the exam and the problem set will count 10%.

The students that opted for single assessement evaluation will have the opportunity to take the same re-evaluation test as the students that had opted for the continuous assessement option (both exams will be identical and will take place on the same day, time and in the same place), but it is mandatory to at least have taken the previous final test. Participation to improve the final mark is possible. The grade of the take-home problem set cannot be improved.
