Mathematics I, Short Course

  • Anytime
    Application Deadline
  • 1 month


The course starts with the real numbers and the related one-variable real functions by studying limits, and continuity. Then it approach the core of calculus, differentatial and integral theory for one-variable real functions. 

The aspects of linear algebra are also included in the course: in particular by studying the linear spaces and the theory and calculus of matrices.If you have enjoyed the MOOCs experience, you can transform it into an actual asset for your academic and professional career: by enrolling in the corresponding UNINETTUNO university course, you will be included into a class and have the support of a tutor who will guide you along your learning path; you will be able to participate in a course delivery cycle, interact with professors and tutors in real time in UNINETTUNO virtual classrooms on the Web (on live streaming) or in UNINETTUNO Island of Knowledge on Second Life; the tracking of your activities on the MOOCs will be recorded and you will be acknowledged as an attending student and will be able to sit for the exam that will allow UNINETTUNO to officially assign you – in case of success – the university study credits corresponding to the selected courses, based on the Credits (European Credits Transfer System) - European Credit Transfer System, recognised by the Italian and by EU universities.
