## Learning objectives

Mathematics I and Exercitations gives first year student the main notions of Mathematics.<br />

Mathematics II and Exercitations completes the mathematical work begun in the Mathematics I course, providing students additional skills useful in understanding how mathematics may be applied to the other subjects in the degree course.

## Prerequisites

Course aims: To give first year students the main basic notions of Mathematics; other basic notions will be given in Mathematics II course. Mathematics I and Mathematics II are courses with only one integrated examination.<br />

9. Prerequisiti:<br />

Rational and irrational numbers. Powers and radicals. Logarithms, exponentials. Basic notions of geometry in plane and of trigonometry.
