Course description

The course provides tools and methodologies in order to understand simple mathematical models.

Knowledge and understanding: The student must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of issues related to the aspects of basic mathematics.

Ability to Apply Knowledge and Understanding: The student must demonstrate how to use the acquired concepts and the tools necessary for the processing and interpretation of experimental data.

Judgment autonomy: Students must be able to independently evaluate situations different from the standard presented by the teacher during the course and to adopt the best solving methodologies.

Communicative Skills: The student must have the ability to express in a simple and clear way the topics discussed in the course.

Learning Skills: The student must be able to update continuously through the consultation of texts and publications (also in English) in order to acquire the ability to deepen new topics that include mathematical models

Prerequisites

Trigonometry, powers, logarithms, geometry, set theory and logic.
