Prerequisites: Basic elements of Calculus (inequalities, cartesian coordinates, trigonometric, logarithmic, and exponential functions).
Target skills and knowledge: The goal of the course is to introduce the basic principles of mathematical analysis for functions of one real variable, with particular care for differential and integral calculus.
Examination methods: The exam consists of two parts: the first one tests practical problem-solving ability, the second one checks the knowledge of the theory behind the exercises.
These two parts can be passed in the same exam or in two consecutive exams within the same session.
Assessment criteria: Understanding of the theory and ability to solve exercises
In particular, the student is asked
1) to be able to use the mathematical language correctly
2) to be able to prove a certain number of theorems in a rigorous way
3) to develop a critical approach that allows him to identify errors in faulty mathematical reasoning.
Course unit contents: Number sets (natural, integer, rational, real and complex). Euclidean plane and space (vectors in the plane and in the space; equations of lines and planes). Real Sequences. Limits and Derivatives of functions of one real variable.Basic theorems of differential calculus. Taylor's formula. Relative and local maxima and minima. Graphs of real-valued functions. Definite and indefinite integrals. Integration methods. Improper integrals. Numerical series. First order differential equations: linear and separable equations. Some introductory notions of Calculus of several variables.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: During the semester there are partial exams which are graded by the teacher.
If the student has a sufficient score in all of them, then the final grade of the exam will be the average of the scores on the partial exams.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Further bibliographical references will be given during the course. All the material presented in the class is available in the Newsgroup of the course MOODLE
