Educational objectives  THE TRANSMISSION OF KNOWLEDGE!!! The aim of the course is to introduce, form and illustrate the basic mathematics to well understand natural phaenomena and several applications to various branches of sciences, taking into account the poetry and the art hidden in Mathematics, to arouse the curiosity of the students. It is required that the student handles fluently the fundamental tools and have the basic notions of Linear Algebra and Statistics, which are useful for successive studies in several sciences, in order to investigate some fundamental aspects of them. It is requested also that the student is able to work in team, but also in autonomy. 
Prerequisites  To understand in detail the topics covered in the course, the student should be familiar with notions like decomposition of simple algebraic expressions, set theory (union, intersection, complement, difference, Venn diagram, algebra of sets), resolution of linear and quadratic equations and inequalities, investigation on polynomials 
Teaching methods  The frequency is not officially mandatory, but warmly suggested, AS WELL AS A DAILY SERIOUS AND RESPONSIBLE STUDY. The course is split into theoretical lessons and practical lessons, which will be given by means of a projector and/or a computer, in these latter several exercises are carried out in class. The course is organized by means of these kinds of lectures and supplementary didactical activities, which include the tutorial service and in which the students are followed individually by the teacher. 
Other information  The hours dedicated to exercises are FUNDAMETAL!!! 
Learning verification modality  The exam consists in a series of tests. Every test is oral, and sometimes by some written tests can be added (BUT NOT NECESSARILY). The teacher will ask ALL THE SUBJECTS IN DETAIL, INCLUDED SOME EXERCISES WHICH MUST BE DONE AND EXPLAINED IMMEDIATELY.

Educational objectives  The main objective of the course is the knowledge of basic physics.The main skills (i.e. the ability to apply the knowledge acquired) will be: the application of basic physics in solving physical and nonphysical problems; the application of this knowledge in problems related to the course of study; the development of the ability to build tools and methods in the study of theoretical concepts and in their application that can be used to face new situations. 
Prerequisites  In order to understand the teaching topics and be able to successfully carry out exercises and applications, it is useful to have attended the Mathematics course and possibly passed the exam.The topics covered in the course of teaching require the ability to solve simple limits, derivatives and integrals. 
Teaching methods  frontal teaching with theoretical lessons and exercises class 
Other information  Attending the lectures and exercise classes is not mandatory, but strongly advised. 
Learning verification modality  The exam consists of a written test with multiple choice questions administered via the LibreEOL platform on the student's computer and takes place in the classroom. The submission of the paper containing the calculations and schemes used to determine the correct answers is required together. The test lasts 2 hours and is aimed at verifying the knowledge and understanding of the theoretical contents and the ability to apply them to solve simple problems.
