The exam aims at ascertaining the acquisition of knowledge that allows one to comprehend and classify single-variable differential calculus problems, integral calculus, linear algebra and geometry, such as detailed in the syllabus; to identify matrices, vectors, the plane’s and space’s geometrical entities, surface area calculus, functional relations and their classifications. At the same time, the exam will ascertain the acquisition of the corresponding skills, such as knowing how to solve single-variable differential calculus problems, integral calculus, linear algebra and geometry. Thus, to know how to reorganize the concepts of matrix, vector, geometrical entity in the plane and in space, surface area, function. The ability to recognize the graph of a function or the skill to represent it will be verified.
The written exam consists of a series of 8 open-ended exercises, of which 2 with a maximum of 7 points available and 6 with a maximum of 3 points available. Maximum points shall be awarded to an exercise if it is complete, correct, logically sound and clearly presented. Any unanswered exercise is valued zero.
The written exam has a duration of 2 hours and it is passed with a mark of at least 18/30. Use of personal notes, textbooks, printed notes and calculator is not permitted. It is possible to use an inventory of formulas specifically prepared by the teacher, which will be rendered available online through the portal. The final grading is composed of the written exam’s mark and, upon explicit request by the student or as an option exercised by the teacher, by the mark of an additional oral examination, which can make the final grading vary in positive as well as in negative.
