Learning Objectives

The course is meant to provide students with the fundamentals of differential and integral calculus, necessary to the biological/biotechnological disciplines, and to develop the logical-deductive abilities necessary for their future study, research and professional activities..

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Students should demonstrate:

D1. Thorough knowledge and not mnemonic comprehension of the treated topics

D2. Capability of application of known mathematical concepts to new and unknown contexts

D3.  Capability of explaining theoretical mathematical concepts through their geometric interpretation in the cartesian plane

D4. Use of rigorous mathematical language in the exposure of the treated topics

D5. Capability of sustaining a mathematical thesis and of linking different topics one another

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

All students are recommended to attend the pre-course in Mathematics that will take place the week before the beginning of lessons.

For students who have not passed the VPI test for the evaluation of basic Mathematical knowledge, so having OFA (Obblighi Formativi Aggiuntivi), attendance of the pre-course in Mathematics is strongly recommended.

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises) and specific communications from the lecturer can be found, together with other supporting activities, inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Frontal lessons

Attendance

Not compulsory, though strongly recommended

Course books

M. Abate, Matematica e Statistica (3° edizione) - Le basi delle scienze della vita, McGraw-Hill, 2017.

OR

Erin N. Bodine, Suzanne Lenhart and Louis J. Gross, Mathematics for the Life Sciences, Princeton University Press, 2014.

Assessment

The examination consists of a written and an oral part.

The written examination is 90 minutes long.

Students are admitted to the oral examination if they have passed the written one with the minimum mark of 12/30.

Disability and Specific Learning Disorders (SLD)

Students who have registered their disability certification or SLD certification with the Inclusion and Right to Study Office can request to use conceptual maps (for keywords) during exams.

To this end, it is necessary to send the maps, two weeks before the exam date, to the course instructor, who will verify their compliance with the university guidelines and may request modifications.
