At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
BY the end of this module, students will be able to:
· Handle functions of a single real variable.
· Write rigorous mathematical reasoning.
· Critically read mathematical statements and analyse them rigorously.
· Solve exercises and understand the results requiring the use of definitions, theorems and formal proposals.
· Transpose abstract mathematical concepts to practical problems related to the field of bioengineering.
· Model simple biological systems using differential equations of the first order and resolve.
Regarding the learning outcomes of the program of Bachelor in bioengineering, this course contributes to the development and the acquisition of the following learning outcomes: : 1.1, 1.5, 1.6, 2.3
The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
Particular attention will be given to illustrations and applications with direct reference to bioengineering. The exercises also help the contextualization of the most theoretical concepts based on concrete problems that bioengineers will face throughout their training and professional life.
During the semester, homework will be offered to allow you to continue the work done during lectures and practicals. These homework's will be evaluated and will be yield a bonus that will be added to the final mark. tutorials will also be proposed each week to give you an opportunity to ask questions to the teachers and assistants responsible for this module
Home working is essential to consolidate your learning, including making links between different concepts and techniques, solving exercises and writing rigorous reasonings. The reference book used for this course contains many solved exercises that will allow you to practice at home.
