Knowledge and understanding
The main objective of the course is devoted to provide students with the key tools for dealing with different kind mathematical problems of various types (arithmetic, geometry, set theory, logic etc ...).

Making judgements
The student have to acquire an autonomous and critical reflection on the course’s issues.
Communication skills
At the end of the course, the student will be able to communicate information regarding to the basic mathematic topics.
Learning skills
Finally, the student must be able to find sources to update and deepen autonomously and constantly knowledges and professional competencies
