Course description

to give the student the necessary math knowledge to address the course of study
KNOWLEDGE AND CAPACITY OF COMPRESSION: The student must demonstrate understanding of differential calculus and its applications to optimization problems and integral calculus.
CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND CAPACITY OF COMPRESSION The student must demonstrate knowing how to apply the knowledge of differential and integral calculus acquired to solve optimization problems. For this purpose, the teacher during the course for the attendants and at the reception for non-attendants provides several exercises.
JUDGMENT AUTONOMY: The student must demonstrate the ability to further study independently, acquired knowledge by applying them also through self-evaluation
COMMUCATIVE SKILLS: The student must be able to answer clearly, concisely and exhaustively both in the written test questions and in the oral test.
LEARNING ABILITY: The student must demonstrate a good learning ability by deepening their knowledge on relevant bibliographic references relevant to the field of study.

Prerequisites

Nobody.

Learning assessment

The assessment is based on a structured written test in order to evaluate the student's achievement of the learning objectives. An oral test will be conducted to evaluate the acquisition and depth of learning of general theoretical knowledge.
