Learning outcomes

The course has a dual purpose: first of all, to make students acquire a rigorous scientific language based on deductive logical-mathematical reasoning; in addition, the course aims to provide students with some analytical tools and basic mathematical models to deal quantitatively with the treatment of economic and business problems. In particular, the foundations of differential and integral calculus, optimization and linear algebra will be provided, which constitute effective tools for analyzing economic and business phenomena. At the end of the lessons the student will have to demonstrate that she has developed the aptitude to face mathematical problems with reasoning and the ability to use, in the application contexts, the appropriate methods, tools and mathematical models. The traditional lectures, dedicated to the more general and theoretical aspects of the discipline, but not without applicative references, are accompanied by hours of exercises, aimed exclusively at solving computational problems and applying them. The students also find in the E-learning pages of the course, as the lessons progress, learning verification tests on the various topics covered


1. Basic mathematical notions
2. One variable functions
3. Limits
4. Differential calculus
5. Integration theory
6. Numerical series
7. Vector spaces, linear transformations and matrices
8. Systems of linear equations
9. Several variables functions

The detailed programme and all the educational material are available in the web page and in the e-learning page of the course.
Teaching supply
The course consists of 48 hours of lectures (equivalent to 6 credits), devoted mainly to the theoretical and general aspects, and 36 hours of exercise lectures (equivalent to 3 credits), dedicated to the solution of computational problems. Both lessons and exercises are in Italian.
On the web page of the course, students will find the teacher's lecture notes, the exercise lectures with the relative solutions and all the exams proposed in the previous exam sessions. Students can test their skill using the e-learning pages. The students with good results in the tests will receive a 1-2 point bonus in their final mark. All teaching material is in Italian.
During the semester and before the exam sessions, there is a tutoring service (also in Italian), organised by senior students, carried out by the teachers.

Assessment methods and criteria

The exam will consist of a quiz of 20 multiple choice questions on the Moodle platform.
A minimum score of 16.5/30 is required to pass the test.
In case of full passing with a grade between 18 and 24, the exam is passed.
In case of full passing with a grade higher than 24, the student can register a 25 or take an oral exam.
In case of not serious insufficiency (grade = 16.5) the student has to take an additional oral exam.
