The study of the environment and impacts on health is a complex and challenging job requiring solid scientific and technical competences. The aim of this course is to give students the basic mathematical and statistical knowledge that are necessary to cope with quantitative activities related to science of life. To reach this aim, it is important that students understand which are the internal structures and the essential procedures of Mathematics and Statistics in order to be able to apply them in their future technical and professional activities.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course students are expected to be able to: Develop a logical and mathematical reasoning Solve problems with differential and integration calculus Develop basic mathematical models Select the most appropriate statistical procedures for scientific and laboratory applications
Students will achieve knowledge of:
Fundamental aspects of differential and integral calculus as a base for further courses in their degree program Fundamental statistical and probabilistic methods as a base for software instruments used in biological and pharmacological laboratories.
