The prerequisite(s) for this Teaching Unit (Unité d’enseignement – UE) for the programmes/courses that offer this Teaching Unit are specified at the end of this sheet.
Teaching methods
Learning activities consist of lectures and exercise sessions. The lectures aim to introduce fundamental concepts, to explain them by showing examples and by determining their results. Only results whose proofs are not hyper-technical are demonstrated in the course. Results are often presented with historical commentary and with applications. Exercise sessions aim at assimilating theory by means of calculation exercises and exercises in thinking. The teacher and exercise assistant have informed students of the office hours during which they are available for further explanation.
Evaluation methods
Assessment is based on a written examination with three parts of equal value: one part checking acquisition of the subject taught; one part requiring more thought to show that the student has been able to put the subject into perspective and has in part absorbed it; and a third part consisting of exercises in the same style as those performed throughout the year.
