- Introduction

This website provides an array of exercises and model solution on the first semester course in mathematics ("IGMAT01") for IME students at Lucerne Business School.

All the exercises are taken from the "series" (i.e. the homework section of the script) of that course. The model solutions presented here go into the details and have the purpose of deepening the unerstanding and of strengthening an intuitive approach to mathematics.

We recommend students to take the following approach:

- First, try to find a solution by yourself (you may wish to
read the
*summary solution*to check your results). - As a second step, you may read the
*detailed solution*to compare your approach to the one applied by the authors. You might find different ways of solving a problem, or become more acquainted with the mathematical way of reasoning. - Remark : once you are familiar with the mathematical way of
reasoning, chances are your way of solving problems will look
like the
*summary solutions*.
