Learning outcomes

The course introduces to the basic concepts and techniques of differential and integral calculus emphasizing methodology and applications over the more formal aspects. The aim is to provide the students with basic tools for addressing scientific issues which can be formalized in the language and methods of calculus.


Properties of real numbers. Sequences and series. Limits. Continuous functions. Differential and integral calculus for functions of one real variable. Elementary ordinary differential equations.
Topology of the real line.

Assessment methods and criteria

The final exam consists of a written test followed, in case of a positive result, by an oral test. The written test consists of some exercises on the program.
The oral test will concentrate mainly but not exclusively on elementary ordinary differential equations and the topology of the real line.
