15.0 h + 15.0 h
This course reviews the prerequisites in mathematics for the courses of the certificates and masters in statistics. 
On particular, fundamental concepts of combinatory analysis, matrix algebra, analysis of single and multiple variables functions (including limits, derivatives and integrals). 
Teaching methods
Formal lectures and exercices sessions.
In 2020-2021, the formal lectures will be organised as "co-modal" with a live broadcast of the course via Teams. It is however advised for the students for whom it is possible (not in quarantine, no symptoms, ...) to be present for the course. 
Evaluation methods
 Written exam - 2 hours - closed book - A form with formula provided by the teacher and a non-programmable calculator are allowed.
The exam consists mainly in exercices but could also include theoretical questions. 
One (non-mandatory) dispensatory evaluation at the beginning of the semester and one (mandatory)  evaluation test are organised at the end of the course. Students with at least 14/20 for the dispensatory evaluation or at least 12/20 for the evaluation test will be allowed to not perfom the exam.
