OVERVIEW

The aim of this course is to provide a practical working tool for students in Engineering or in any other field where rigorous
Calculus is needed. The basic focus is on functions of one real variable and  basic ordinary differential equations, separation
of variables, linear first-order, and constant coefficients ODE.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim is to achieve good knowledge of differential and integral calculus for one or two variables functions.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The student will have to acquire a solid ability in Mathematical Analysis, in particular he must know how to study a function of one or more real variables. Moreover  he will have to know how to apply the various theorems for the resolution  of simple differential equations of the first order and higher order (linear with constant coefficients).

PREREQUISITES

Elementary algebra: equations and inequalities, trigonometry.

TEACHING METHODS

104 hours of  lessons. During the theoretical lessons the definitions and the theorems will be presented with many examples and applications. During the other part of the course  many exercises will be solved.  During the academic year some guided exercises will be carried out.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Real numbers, infimum and supremum, functions of one real variable, elementary functions, limits, infinitesimals and infinities, continuous functions, derivable functions, differentiable functions, Taylor’s formula, expansion of elementary functions, primitives and indefinite integrals, methods of indefinite integration, definite integrals, fundamental theorem of integral calculus, first order differential equations, Cauchy’s problem and theorem, resolution of linear first order differential equations and separable variables equations, linear differential equations with constant coefficients of order n.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The final exam consists of a written test and an oral exam. The student must obtain an evaluation of at least 12/30 in the written test  to access the oral exam. The various phases of the exam will ascertain whether the student will have acquired mastery of the scientific language, knowledge of the various theorems and the ability to know how to apply them to solve various problems. During the year two intermediate written tests will be held, the final average of which (in the case greater than or equal to 18) can be used to present oneself for the oral test of each session.


 

Students with a certified DSA, disability or other special educational needs are advised to contact the lecturer at the beginning of the course in order to agree on teaching and examination methods that, while respecting the teaching objectives, take into account individual learning methods and provide suitable compensatory tools.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

During the written test the student will have to solve some exercises concerning the study of functions and  the differential problem. During the oral examination the student must highlight critical analytical skills and must be able to apply the main theorems for the solution of  easy exercises.
