Code 55106206 PERUGIA 3 Antonio Boccuto Antonio BoccutoAntonio Boccuto 21 ore - Antonio Boccuto20 ore - Antonio Boccuto Affine/integrativa Attività formative affini o integrative MAT/05 Obbligatorio (Required) ITALIANIt is possible to do the examination also in English. The program is divided into four parts:1) Elements of analytic geometry, trigonometry, inequalities, sets, realnumbers, elementary functions, injective, surjective and bijectivefunctions. Composite functions Percentuals.2) Limits, derivatives and study of functions.3) Integrals and applications to probability and statistics. Definite andindefinite integral.Improper integrals.Gamma function. Distribution function. Probability density.4) Combinatorics and probability. Conditioned probability. Bayes formula.Elements of descriptive statistics: mean, median, mode, variance, meansquare error, covariance, correlation coefficient, regression line. Material given by the teacher. The aim of the course is to introduce, form and illustrate the basicmathematics to well understand natural phaenomena and severalapplications to various branches of sciences, taking into account thepoetry and the art hidden in Mathematics, to arouse the curiosity of thestudents. It is required that the student handles fluently the fundamentaltools and have the basic notions of Linear Algebra and Statistics, whichare useful for successive studies in several sciences, in order toinvestigate some fundamental aspects of them. It is requested also thatthe student is able to work in team, but also in autonomy. To better understand the topics covered in the course the student shouldbe familiar with notions like decomposition of simple algebraicexpressions, set theory (union, intersection, complement, difference,Venn diagram, algebra of sets), resolution of linear and quadraticequations and inequalities, investigation on polynomials. The frequence is not officially obligatory, but warmly suggested, AS WELLAS A DAILY SERIOUS AND RESPONSIBLE STUDY.The course is split into theoretical lessons and practical lessons, whichwill be given by means of a projector and/or a computer, in these latterseveral exercises are carried out in class. The course is organized bymeans of these kinds of lectures and supplementary didactical activities,whichinclude the tutorial service and in which the students are followedindividually by the teacher. The hours dedicated to exercises are FUNDAMETAL!!! The exam consists in a series of tests,to establish together with the students.The test is oral, and MAY be preceded by some written tests (NOT NECESSARILY) ONLY IF THE SITUATION RETURNS TO THAT BEFORE COVID. The teacher will ask ALL THE SUBJECTS IN DETAIL, INCLUDED SOME EXERCISES WHICH MUST BE DONE IMMEDIATELY. The program is divided into four parts:1) Elements of analytic geometry, trigonometry, inequalities, sets, realnumbers, elementary functions, injective, surjective and bijectivefunctions. Percentuals, equivalences.2) Limits, derivatives and study of functions, and related theorems.3) Integrals and applications to probability and statistics. Definite andindefinite integral.Fundamental theorems. Improper integrals.Gamma function. Distribution function. Probability density.4) Combinatorics and probability. Conditioned probability. Bayes formula.Elements of descriptive statistics: mean, median, mode, variance, meansquare error, quartiles, percentiles, covariance, correlation coefficient,regression line.The program is divided into four parts:1) Elements of analytic geometry, trigonometry, inequalities, sets, realnumbers, elementary functions, injective, surjective and bijectivefunctions.
