Matematics and statistics
(objectives)
TRAINING OBJECTIVES The aim of the course is to provide students with the main notions of the analysis mathematics and statistics, aimed at making students learn techniques necessary to study the functions, solve problems based on integral calculus and solve some easy differential equations. Where possible, the concepts covered will be applied to build and study mathematical models of real phenomena related to applied sciences, in particular biology.
EXPECTED LEARNING RESULTS Knowledge and understanding (Dublin descriptor 1) Acquire knowledge • the concepts of function, limits and derivability of the functions of one real variable and all the notions that allow you to study a function; • the notion of integral, integration methods and the main ones applications of integral calculus; • differential equations and some solving methods. Ability to apply acquired knowledge (Dublin descriptor 2) Knowing how to use the concepts learned for • solve equations and inequalities; • calculate limits, derivatives, integrals and study functions; • solve differential equations. Judgment autonomy (Dublin descriptor 3) • Be able to identify the appropriate rules to apply to solving new problems, similar to those discussed in class. Communication skills (Dublin descriptor 4) • Students' ability to talk, reason and will be stimulated discuss the questions raised during the lessons regarding the topics treated. Learning skills (Dublin descriptor 5) • Be able to discuss some scientific topics by building simple mathematical models.
