Learning outcomes

The course provides students with a rigorous scientific language based on a logical-mathematical deductive reasoning; moreover, it aims to furnish some analytical tools and basic mathematical models to deal quantitatively with the treatment of economic and business problems. In particular, the course yields the classical arguments from Mathematical Analysis (differential and integral calculus, optimization) and Linear Algebra, which constitute an effective tool for analyzing economic and business phenomena. At the end of the lessons, the student will have to demonstrate that he has acquired the ability to critically review the concepts encountered in the course and to apply methods, tools and mathematical models.

Syllabus

1. Basic mathematical notions
2. One variable functions
3. Limits
4. Differential calculus
5. Integration theory
6. Vector spaces and matrices
7. Systems of linear equations
8. Functions of several variables

The detailed program and further educational material are available in the course web page.

Teaching supply
The course includes 48 hours of lectures (equivalent to 6 credits) and 36 hours of exercise lectures (equivalent to 36 credits).
Beside lectures on theoretical topics, the course includes exercise lectures to complete the knowledge with an adequate calculus ability.

Assessment methods and criteria

Written and oral final exam.

The possibility to participate remotely to the exam is guaranteed for all the requesting students.
The content, the allowed time and the evaluation criteria of the exam will be the same whether for the students in the classroom or for the remote ones.

The written exam is a test consisting of 20 multiple choice questions. The time available for the test is 60 minutes.
A minimum score of 15/30 is required at the written test to be admitted to the oral exam.

The oral exam consists at first in discussing the possible mistakes of the written test; then, in investigating the student's preparation on the theoretical part of the course; therefore, definitions, simple propositions, statements of the main theorems may be required.

Further details on the assessment methods can be found on the e-learning page of the course and more clarifications will be provided near the date of the written test.
