Quadrimestre 1 -
This seminar-modelled course harmoniously integrates lectures, supervised assignments as well as assignments in which students are asked to be proactive. Its interactive character leads students to adopt an efficient and dynamic attitude. It presents an Introduction to discrete mathematics as a conceptual aid in the world of numbers as well as aspects of numerical analysis (this field is presented through simple examples such as those related to problems of approximation by means of rational numbers, and calculations relating to real numbers).
See course book.
Problem solving is put in the foreground so as to develop the following skills: understanding input, translate this one into a mathematical language in order to solve it in a rigorous way and give an answer expressed in natural language (the parallel between this process and the expected IT process will be established.)
For more information, students are referred to the course book as well as to the schedule which is handed out to students at the beginning of the year, accompanied by an oral commentary dealing especially with the need to use the schedule to organize personal study.
