FUNDAMENTALS OF MATHEMATICS

## Competencies and objectives

#### Course context for academic year 2019-20

Mathematics are a fundamental tool for the study of experimantal sciences. Its location in first course inside the common teachings of basic formation in Biology degree allows to consolidate the knowlegde that students should have adquiared in High School, and, moreover, it gives the basic tools for the elaboration, study and simulation of different biological dinamic models.

#### Course content (verified by ANECA in official undergraduate and Master’s degrees)
