OVERVIEW

This is a semi-annual course, devoted to limits, differential calculus and integral calculus for functions of one real variable.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main objective is to supply the fundamentals of differential and integral calculus in one variable. In particular, students are expected to develop the following skills: operations on limits and derivatives, study of functions of one variable, integral calculus (indefinite and definite integrals).

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main objective is to supply the fundamentals of differential and integral calculus in one variable. In particular, students are expected to develop the following skills: operations on limits and derivatives, study of functions of one variable, integral calculus (indefinite and definite integrals), resolution of some specific differential equations.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam consists of a written and an oral test. Oral test has to be taken in the same exam appeal of written test.

Furthermore, during the semester, two partial written tests might be delivered.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The written examination consists in some exercises about the topics covered in this course. In such a test is proven the ability to solve problems relating to calculation of limits, derivatives and integrals of one variable functions, and study of properties of one variable functions.

The test lasts two hours and it is possible to consult the notes and textbooks.

In the oral exam a discussion of the written examination is done; moreover some questions are asked on the course content and/or about the solution of some exercises about the topics covered in this course. In this way, students are assessed on their knowledge and understanding of the content covered in the course, and on reasoning skills they have acquired.

FURTHER INFORMATION

At the beginnng of the lectures, office hours for students will be established. Students are suggested to enroll in AulaWeb, in order to be able to get further information by the teachers about the course.
