AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

To learn how to use computers and some application programs through theoretical lessons and practical exercises.In particular, basic notions are provided for the use of computers in scientific applications (hardware, software, information, representation, text editors, spreadsheets and presentations).

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course consists of two parts, each of 2 credits.

The first part aims to introduce the student to the use of the LibreOffice suite (in particular the Calc spreadsheet), with the aim of making him able to use Calc to process and display data, such as those acquired from databases available on internet.

The second part aims to introduce the student to Bioinformatics, the information on it will be available after the second co-teacher takes service.

PREREQUISITES

In order to use spreadsheets properly, the student must have basic mathematical skills and reasoning and analytical skills, typically covered by mathematics courses in the first year.

TEACHING METHODS

Teaching takes place over 14-16 weeks, each of which normally includes either 2 hours of classroom lessons or 3 hours of guided laboratory (which could take place, at least in part, remotely using the teams platform).

During the semester there will be an assessment done during class time (with booking and submission on AulaWeb).

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The first part of the course includes introductory lessons followed by guided workshops on how to find information online and process and visualize data using Calc.

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

The teaching material (including any video recordings) will be made available on aulaweb.

It is also possible to consult and download the documentation in English on LibreOffice from https://documentation.libreoffice.org/en/english-documentation
