Math Foundation Course for 12th Grade Students

Saturday, February 5, 2022, 10:00 – 12:00
SSE Riga

Considering studies at SSE Riga? Wish to improve your math skills and challenge yourself? Join the Math Foundation Course at SSE Riga!

SSE Riga is organising a practical "Math Foundation Course" which is designed for high school students and aims at building a bridge between high school maths and university level maths.

The course sessions will be held three Saturdays in a row (10:00-12:00), on February 5, 12, and 19. The course is free of charge, however, prior registration is necessary.

Each session consists of 2 parts: a one-hour lecture led by Associate Professor Nicolas Gavoille, and then a one-hour seminar led by an actual SSE Riga student. In other words, one part with theory, one part with exercises to solve. The topics of the three sessions: 1) differentiation, 2) optimization, 3) integral calculus. 

Who delivers the course?

The course has been designed by the SSE Riga faculty, and it will be delivered by Nicolas Gavoille, who is an  Associate Professor at SSE Riga since 2015 and holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Rennes 1, France. At SSE Riga Nicolas Gavoille teaches BSc courses: Mathematics; Econometrics; Economic Specialisation; Game Theory.

Where does it take place?

The lectures in the Math Foundation take place in Soros Auditorium at SSE Riga, Strēlnieku 4a. This is also a great opportunity to visit SSE Riga and get an idea of how it feels to be a student here.

Do I have to attend all the classes?

Yes, you are advised to attend all scheduled sessions. Only students taking part in all three will receive a Certificate of attendance.
