1. Knowledge and understanding. At the end of the course the student will have knowledge of topics concerning real sequences, the infinitesimal calculus of real functions of a real variable and ordinary differential equations.
2. Applying knowledge and understanding. The student will be introduced to the main applications of the theoretical notions of the course, concerning both the solution of mathematical problems and the study of physical problems.
3. Autonomy of judgment. The student will learn how to classify single problems of differential and integral calculus, as well as differential equations, in the right class and to apply the most convenient method.
4. Communicative Skills. Students will acquire the ability to communicate what they learn and elaborate and also to express and argue the choice of methodology with respect to another to solve a mathematical problem.
5. Learning skills. Thanks to the notions acquired in this course, the student will be able to perfect his knowledge of higher mathematics and its applications to engineering.
