OVERVIEW

The aim of the course is to provide the basic elements of differential calculus for functions of one variable.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides some basic concepts of mathematical analysis and the first elements of differential calculus for functions of one variable.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The main expected learning outcomes are

  • to master the mathematical notation
  • the knowledge of the properties of the main elementary functions 
  • the ability to follow the logical concatenation of arguments 
  • to master simple demonstration techniques 
  • the ability to solve exercises, discussing the reasonableness of the results

PREREQUISITES

Numerical sets, equations and inequalities, analytical geometry, trigonometry.

TEACHING METHODS

Lecture classes and exercise classes.

Students who have valid certification of physical or learning disabilities on file with the University and who wish to discuss possible accommodations or other circumstances regarding lectures, coursework and exams, should speak both with the instructor and with Professor Federico Scarpa (federico.scarpa@unige.it), the Polytechnic School's disability liaison.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam consists of

  • Multiple choice test
  • Written exam

 

To enroll the exam, you must register by the deadline on the website

https://servizionline.unige.it/studenti/esami/prenotazione

ASSESSMENT METHODS

Multiple choice tests. It is aimed to verify the student's ability to manage mathematical notation and to carry out simple computations and simple deductive reasoning. It is necessary to be successful in the multiple choice test in order to access the written exam.

Written exam. This part includes open questions and exercises. It is aimed to verify the knowledge of the main tools of differential calculus. The written exam consists of exercises with several questions of different difficulty.   The student must be able to solve the exercises correctly and to justify the necessary steps to obtain the final result, and to use the correct formalism.
