Leerdoelen Upon completion of this module the student is able to
01. compute the angle between two vectors in the n-dimensional Euclidean space
02. write down a (non)parametric equation of the plane through three given points
03. check and prove (formulating correctly and completely) if a set of vectors is linearly (in)dependent or a basis of the space
04. compute and prove limits of sequences in several variables
05. prove a set is open, closed or compact
06. prove a function in several variables is linear or a quadratic form, and to determine the corresponding matrices
07. prove a function in one or more variables is continuous or is a norm
08. prove a sequence in the Euclidean space is a Cauchy sequence
09. compute the n-th order Taylor polynomial of functions in one variable and to estimate the remainder of a Taylor approximation of the n-th order
10. master the theory by solving problems individually or in small groups (A-practice), solve problems and test himselve or herselve (B-practice), grade B-practice problems of other students (C-practice), and solve problems and test themselves in a small group (T-practice)
Omschrijving Main educational goal: The student will learn to formulate in a mathematically correct way and acquires understanding of the mathematics underlying economic models.
He or she obtains the skills to prove results, and to solve problems.
Introduction to linear algebra, functions of several variables and advanced analysis.
