## Learning objectives

D1 - KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING

At the end of the educational activities, students will master knowledges and understanding of basic topics in applied physics and mathematics, and in computer sciences. The course aims to bring students to know and understand in the context of Veterinary Sciences:In particular the statistical indices, the information in a table of data, the distributions of Bernoulli and Gauss; the theoretical foundations of computer basic, vocabulary and main instruments for use competent Informatics; the physical tools preparatory to other topics: chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, biomechanics, radiology.

D2 - APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING

To correctly apply formulae and concepts; to be able to understand and solve autonomously problems of applied physics and mathematics; to be able to understand correctly the text of theoretical questions and problems. To apply the learned knowledge to solve concrete problems (such as e.g., the problem of dosing the elements when preparing a medicine to administer to an animal or the problem of extracting significant information from a large number of data, also using probabilistic tools). To be able to use in a competent way computer science in the context of veterinary sciences, to use autonomously spreadsheets to create simple graphs and simple elaborations of data. Finally, to be able to perform bibliographic researches in the main databases concerning veterinary sciences.

D3 - MAKING JUDGMENTS

To be able to use the knowledge and understanding of the course topics to solve simple problems, autonomously evaluating the better and fastest solution for the problem itself. To be able to analyze quantitative data and to control research hypotheses through simple statistical analyses.To know how to answer questions on the studied topics in a critical way. Students must be able to evaluate coherence and correctness of results obtained by themselves or by others

D4 - COMMUNICATION SKILLS

To be able to answer questions in a synthetic and rigorous way, on the studied topics; to be able to express in an immediately understandable language concepts and comments to multiple answer questions. Through the front lectures and the assistance of the teacher, the students acquire the specific and appropriate scientific vocabulary, applied to the specific topics learned in each module.

D5 - LEARNING SKILLS

The student who has attended the modular course, is able to deepen autonomously his/her knowledge in statistics and probability, of ppalied physics and of informatics. He/She will also be able to consult specialized textbook, even outside the topics illustrated during the lectures. This to facilitate the entry in the labour market as well as a second-level study in fileds requiring knowledges in the three given fields.
