This course represents a bridge between high school and university.
The main goal of the course is to provide the students with tools to follow the concatenation of simple logical arguments, and to introduce the fundamentals of differential and integral calculus for functions of one variable, with applications to ordinary differential equations of the first and the second order.

The course consists of 60 hours of lectures and 40 hours of exercise classes. Theoretical lessons are devoted to the presentation of the topics, with definitions, theorems, examples, properties and the proofs which are believed to facilitate the learning process. Every theoretical aspect is associated with introductory examples. The exercise hours aim to gain an adequate ability in computation.

The main purpose of the exam is to ascertain both the theoretical knowledge of the subject and the ability to apply theory to the solution of exercises. It consists of a multiple-choice test and a written exam, possibly followed by an oral exam. The final mark is determined by the scores of the test and the written exam and, if the oral exam takes place, its result is also taken into account.
TEST. This part of the exam, which lasts one hour and takes place in a computer lab, consists of 20 multiple-choice queries, including theoretical questions and covering all the syllabus. Books or other teaching material cannot be consulted. Each question is worth one point, and the maximum achievable score is 20. If the score is less than 12 then the exam is failed, otherwise the student proceeds with the written exam.
WRITTEN EXAM. This part lasts 75 minute, and typically consists of two exercises. Of these, the former is the study of a function, while the latter is devoted to some more specific part of the syllabus and may include theoretical questions. Books or other teaching material cannot be consulted. The maximum achievable score is 13. If the score is less than 5 then the exam is failed, otherwise the final score of the exam is obtained as the sum of the scores of the test and the written part, unless an oral examination is required by the teacher (or by the student, provided that the final score is at least 18).
ORAL EXAM. This part of the exam, which can be requested by the teacher or by the student as described above, mainly aims at ascertaining the theoretical knowledge of the subject, and is a further element of appraisal. In case this part of the exam takes place, its result will contribute (together with the scores of the test and the written exam) to the final exam score.

Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

Ongoing activities will be monitored, such as, for example, self-assessment tests and exercises during the entire duration of the semester. The main purpose of the exam is to ascertain both the theoretical knowledge of the subject and the ability to apply the theory to the solution of exercises. It consists of a multiple-choice test and a written exam, possibly followed by an oral exam. The final mark is determined taking into account the scores achieved in the on-going activities, in the test, in the written test, and in the oral exam, if it takes place.
ONGOING ACTIVITIES. The activities require the active participation of the student during the semester. They will be detailed by each lecturer and include, for example, answering to self-assessment tests and the resolution of exercises to be delivered according to methods and deadlines announced at the beginning of the course. The maximum score is 3.
TEST. This part of the exam, which lasts 45 minutes and takes place in a computer lab or a classroom with a proctoring system (LockDownBrowser), consists of 15 multiple-choice quizzes, including theoretical questions and covering all the syllabus. Books or other teaching material cannot be consulted, as well as any electronic device not explicitly authorized. Each question is worth one point, so that the maximum achievable score is 15. If the score is less than 8, the exam is failed, otherwise the student proceeds with the written exam.
WRITTEN EXAM. This part lasts 90 minutes, and typically consists of two exercises. Books or other teaching material cannot be consulted, as well as any electronic device not explicitly authorized. The maximum achievable score is 15. If the score is less than 8, the exam is failed, otherwise the final score of the exam is obtained as the sum of the scores of the on-going activities, the test and the written part, unless an oral examination is required by the lecturer (or by the student, provided that the final score is at least 18/30).
ORAL EXAM. This part of the exam mainly aims at ascertaining the theoretical knowledge of the subject, and is a further element of appraisal. In case this part of the exam takes place, its result will contribute (together with the scores of the other tests) to the final mark of the exam.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
