Objectives

1. Knowledge and understanding: At the end of the course the student will have knowledge of topics concerning real sequences, the infinitesimal calculus of real functions of a real variable and ordinary differential equations.

2. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding: Students will be able to understand and interpret mathematical problems whose resolution is related to the knowledge of infinitesimal calculus as well as to real sequences and differential equations.

3. Autonomy of judgment: Theoretical and applied notions will enable the student to understand which mathematical models and techniques are most appropriate for describing natural phenomena.

4. Communicative Skills: Students will acquire the ability to communicate what they learn and elaborate and also to express and argue the choice of methodology with respect to another to solve a mathematical problem.

5. Learning abilities: Students will learn methodologies and tools such as: infinitesimal analysis and its direct applications to optimization problems and mathematical modeling in the general sense.

Verification of learning

Compatibly with the teaching methods from the Manifesto degli Studi per l'A.A. 2021-22, as consequence of the COVID-19 emergency, the exams will be held either in the presence or on the Teams platform or on an alternative telematic platform previously agreed between the teacher and the student.

The exam consists of a written test in which the following topics are proposed: general analysis of a real function of a real variable, integral calculus and applications, differential equations and numeric sequences. The student will have to demonstrate that he has understood and learnt the techniques for handling and exposing each of the topics discussed and to know how to apply the various methodologies linked to the techniques of resolution. The exam score is awarded by a vote between 1 and 30. The test consists of 5 exercises, 4 of which are mandatory (with score 7.5 each) and 1 optional (with score 3) and the score is determined according to the following rule: sum of the scores obtained in the individual exercises. In evaluating the examination, the final vote determination takes into account the logic followed by the student for each proposed exercise, the calculation strategy chosen in terms of the hypothesis of the problem, the clarity of the exposition and the reasoning.
