The course Institutions of Mathematics constits of the modules Elements of Mathematics (cod. 72565, 1srt semester) and Elements of Mathematics 2 (cod. 72566, 2nd semester). The subject of the course is the study of real functions of one and two real variables, the differential calculus, and the integral calculus.

This section provides information that is common to the two modules; the specific information can be found in the modules sheets.

    • TEACHING METHODS

      The course is organized in theoretical and exercises lectures, which are based on teaching methods that aim to encourage students to take an active role in the development of the learning process.

      The course also provides classroom and online instructional tutorials, which are based on a workshop approach and make it possible to implement flexible learning pathways adapted to the needs of individual students.

      The material course is made available on the Aulaweb site of the course: handouts of lectures, exercises sheets, texts and solutions of guided exercises, texts and solutions of written exams from previous years.

      EXAM DESCRIPTION

      The exam consists of a written test and an oral test about the arguments carried out in the course.The written and oral tests must be done in the same exame session (June-July, or September, or January-February).

      The written exam can be replaced by the successful completion of two intermediate tests carried out during the course. It is possible to try again one of the two intermediate tests during the written test session of any of the exams. In any case, the scores of the intermediate tests are valid only till February 2020.

      The evaluation criteria of the online laboratory activities will be described on the Aulaweb course module.

      ASSESSMENT METHODS

      The assessment concerns the acquisition of the concepts contained in the course, the ability to apply these concepts to the resolution of exercises and the reasoning skills of the student.

      The written tests (intermediate and complete) are organized on several questions with graded difficulty, which make it possible to obtain a precise assessment of the degree of achievement of the educational goals. To this aim, the board of examiners establishes the criteria for the award of partial scores to the various responses taking into account the difficulty of the proposed topics. Based on these criteria it is possible to accurately associate the total score gained to the achievement of the expected learning outcomes.

      The oral examination is always conducted by two professors with years of experience of examinations in the discipline. The exam commission verifies with high accuracy the achievement of the educational objectives. If these objectives are considered met, a weighted average of the written (complete or intermediate)and oral exam evaluation is done. Each academical year the exam commssion sets the relative weight to be given to each test.

      The exam is not passed when the educational objectives are not met; in this case the student is invited to deepen the study and to require further explanation by the lecturer about some parts of the contents and about the study method to be adopted.
