Mathematical Analysis I
The aim of this course is to learn basic calculus and some theorems of real analysis (differential and integral calculus, sequences and series of real numbers and real functions). A further aim is to apply analytical techniques in other scientific disciplines.
Learning outcomes (declined compared with the Dublin descriptors)
-Knowledge and understanding. Knowledge of the differential and integral calculus for functions of one real variable. The student will be able to state and prove basic theorems of Mathematical Analysis.
-Applying knowledge and understanding. The ability to understand the problems proposed during the course, the ability to correctly apply the theoretical knowledge. The student will be able to study of the graphs of elementary functions, to solve integration problems of elementary character, to discuss the nature of numerical sequences and series.
-Making judgments. Develop the ability to critically evaluate the problems and propose the most appropriate approach
-Communication skills. Ability to report and present the results with a ogical-deductive and synthetic exposition.
-Ability to learn.Ability to develop, outline, summarize the contents
Algebra of polynomials. Elements of analytic geometry. Elements of goniometry and trigonometry.
Elementary equations and inequalities.
Review of elementary set theory. The real number system. Sequences of real numbers.
The concept of function. Continuous functions and related theorems. Differential calculus for functions of one variable. Integral calculus for functions of one variable. Series.

The objective of the exam is to check the level of achievement of the above-mentioned training objectives.
The exam is divided into two parts:
- A written test that aims to evaluate the ability to correctly use the theoretical knowledge acquired during the course to solve mathematical problems. The student who does not show sufficient mastery of the arguments is not admitted to the next test. The expected time is 2 hours.
- an oral test in which the ability to link and compare different aspects of the course will be evaluated.
The final vote takes into account the evaluation of both tests.
