Academic Year 2015/2016

Course contents

MATHEMATICS 1 (Prof. Fausto Desalvo)

The real numbers. Differential calculus for  functions of one real variable. Exponential and logarithmic functions. Trigonometric functions. Limits and continuity. Derivatives, monotony, local maxima and minima. 

MATHEMATICS 2 (Prof. Andrea Mentrelli)

Integral calculus for functions of one real variable: primitive and integral, techniques of integrations (by parts, by substitution). First-order differential equations. Higher-order and systems of differential equations. 

COMPUTER SCIENCE (Proff. Fabio Vitali e Davide Bresolin)

* The information (formalization, elaboration, organization, access)
* The tools (computation systems, data acquisition, operating systems, networks)

* HTTP and TML
* Server-side applications in Python

Teaching methods


Assessment methods

A written test about Mathematics I and II and Computer Science. The part of the written exam about Differential and Integral Calculus will comprise problems, including the study of a function. The other problem(s) will be of the type given during the course as homework. The study of a function will carry about half of the total score points: it will thus be necessary to work it out rather well, to hope for a good grade on the Calculus part of the exam.
