Syllabus
Prerequisites: Though the following topics will be briefly recalled, the student is supposed to have a good knowledge of
- linear and quadratic equations and inequalities,
- equation of line, parabola and circle,
- main trigonometric relations,
- properties of exponentiation and logarithms.
Target skills and knowledge: This course aims at providing mathematical tools for the study of functions and the solutions of practical problems by means of derivatives, integrals and differential equations.
Examination methods: Written exam, possibly followed by a brief oral exam.
Assessment criteria: In the written exam the students are required to solve some exercises of the same kind as those proposed during the course.
The oral exam consists in a brief discussion of the written exam and/or some questions on the main theoretical notions of the course.
Course unit contents: - Recollection of some basic notions.
- The notion of function, elementary functions.
- Exponentiation and logarithms.
- Limit of a function.
- Derivatives, maximum and minimum points, increasing and decreasing functions, convex and convave functions.
- Study of a function.
- Functions of two or more variables.
- Integrals.
- Some kinds of differential equations.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Lectures and exercises.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lecture notes will be given to the students. It is also possible (though not strictly necessary) to use the books suggested below.
