Educational objectives  The main objective of the course is to provide on the one hand the basics of the language of linear algebra and, on the other hand, the methods of solving some simple problems in an operational perspective that also includes the use of the computer tools. The main knowledge acquired will concern the basic notions of linear algebra related to vector spaces and linear applications and the algorithmic methods of solving classical mathematical problems. The main skills that the course aims to transmit are:  be able to describe simple problems related to basic sciences using the language of mathematics, and in particular linear algebra  knowing how to solve, even with the aid of a computer, simple numerical problems related to linear systems, polynomial equations, analytical geometry. 
Prerequisites  A good knowledge of high school math subjects. 
Teaching methods  Lectures and tutorials

Learning verification modality  The exam is based on a written test which consists of the solution of computational problems and a practical test with a spreadsheet. The test lasts no more than two hours and is aimed at verifying the ability to correctly apply theoretical knowledge, the ability to understand the proposed problems and the ability to learn and develop solutions independently.

Educational objectives  The main objective of the module is to provide on the one hand the basics of mathematical language and, on the other hand, the methods of solving simple equations and inequalities which will then be used in the study of a function. The main knowledge acquired will concern the basic notions of set theory and the solution of inequalities. The main skills that the module aims to convey are:  be able to describe in analytical terms the conditions of existence of mathematical laws  knowing how to solve simple systems of equations and inequalities. 
Prerequisites  Operations with polynomials. Algebraic fractions. Radicals Decomposition and factoring 
Teaching methods  Lectures and tutorials 
Other information  Students are strongly advised to follow lessons 
Learning verification modality  The examination involves an individual written test lasting 1,5 hours. The written test is aimed at verifying the correct application of the rules and all theoretical skills reached by the student in manipulating the calculation methods. In particular during the exam, the student will solve logarithm exponential irrational trigonometric inequalities and also a trigonometric problem.
