Syllabus
Prerequisites: None
Target skills and knowledge: The course has the aim to provide a basic knowledge in calculus, biostatistics, probability and physics applied to biological sciences. The course is divided into a main part of 6 ULC (50 hours) of Principles of biostatistics and physics (FIS/07) and a minor part of 4 ULC (34 hours) of biostatistics (MAT/06).
Examination methods: Written exam.
It is not allowed the consultation of books and slides.
Assessment criteria: Each exercise accounts for a specific amount in the highest grade of 33/30 (corresponding to 30 cum laude). The criteria for a positive assessment are correctness, accuracy and completeness of the solutions of the exercises.
Course unit contents: Calculus and physics (6 credit - 50 hours) - Functions and their graphs. The elementary functions (polynomials, power, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric). Limits. The limit of the sum, product, quotient and composed of two functions. Derivative and their geometrical meaning. Derivatives of elementary functions. Derivation rules. Growth and descrescenza, maximum and minimum. The concept of integral
Work. Kinetic and potential energy. Energy conservation. Thermodynamics. Pressure, temperature, heat. Temperature scales. The principles of thermodynamics. Gas laws. Transformations isotherms, isobars, adiabatic. Work done by an expanding gas. Statics and dynamics of fluids. Principles of spectroscopy. Electrostatic potential.

Biostatistics (4 credit - 34 hrs) - General concepts of biostatistics. Descriptive statistic: measures of position and variation. Sampling methodologies. Normal distribution of population and selection index. Correlation and regression between two continuous variables. Statistical test. Goodness-of-fit test (Chi-Square test). Kruskal-Wallis non parametric test. Basic of Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). Probability and rules about probabilities. Simple and compound probability; probability and combinations. Binomial and Poisson distributions.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Calculus and Physics (FIS / 07; 6 credit)
Lectures (40 hours) and exercises (10 hours) based on exercises.

The teaching materials (PDF files) will be available in Moodle (https://elearning.unipd.it/scuolaamv/).

Principles of biostatistics (MAT/06; 4 credit) -
Lectures (24 hours)and exercises (10 hours). It is required to carry out exercises in itinere by using Moodle (https://elearning.unipd.it/scuolaamv/).
Additional notes about suggested reading: Calculus and Physics (FIS/07) -
By appointment, at the Dipartimento di Biomedicina Comparata e Alimentazione, viale dell'Università 16, Agripolis, Legnaro, or
after the lectures, at the Complesso Universitario Margherita in Vicenza, viale Margherita 87, in days and hours to be decided together with the students.

Principles of biostatistics (MAT/06; 4 credit) - Office hours c/o Complesso Universitario Margherita in Vicenza, viale Margherita 87, on Monday at 08.00 by appointment.
