The goal of the course is to provide elementary notions of calculus and to develop the proper technical language in order to attend more specialized quantitative courses such as "Statistica", "Statistica per le decisioni aziendali", "Statistica per i Big Data Economico/Aziendali" and "Econometria". The above described skills will be developed almost exclusively via a practical approach, that is, by solving exercises and applied problems.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, the student will possess an adequate mathematical terminology and learned the main quantitative tools related to the study of a real function such as the calculation of limits, differential analysis, integration theory, optimization of univariate and bivariate functions. In addition, the student will learn the fundamentals of linear algebra (linear system resolution, determinant and matrix inverse calculation) and some elements of Financial Mathematics. In particular, the student will be able to approach a mathematical problem knowing how to write/communicate it in an elegant and concise way, recognizing its form and category, identifying and knowing how to communicate the best resolution strategy.
