# CALCULUS 1 (UNIT 2)

## Learning outcomes of the course unit

Knowledge and understanding:

At the end of this course the student should know the essential definitions

and results in analysis in one variable, and he should be able to grasp how

these enter in the solution of problems.

Applying knowledge and understanding:

The student should be able to apply the forementioned notionsto solve medium

level problems, and to understand how they will be used in a more applied

context.

Making judgements:

The student should be able to evaluate coherence and correctness of the

results obtained by him or presented him.

Communication skills:

The student should be able to communicate in a clear and precise way, also

in a context broader than mere calculus.

## Teaching methods

classroom lectures and classroom exercises

## Assessment methods and criteria

The examination is both written and oral.

In the written part, the student will show his basis knowledge and his ability in solving some particular paroblem. In the oral part, the student will show his knowledge of the foundamental theorems of Mathematical Analisys 1. The oral exposition must be done using a proper mathematical formalism.
