The course is aimed at students who want to review the basic knowledge of mathematics before starting the courses of the curricula of Chemistry and Sustainable Technologies, of Sciences and Technologies for Cultural Heritage and of Physical Engineering. In particular, the course is aimed at students enrolled with additional educational obligations (OFA).

The aim of the course is to briefly review the mathematics knowledge relating to the first three years of the upper secondary school curricula, in order to provide secondary elements useful for addressing the teachings of the first year of the degree course.

Representative exercises will be analyzed and solved, also taken from past editions of the TOLC-I test.
- Properties of numbers (natural, integer, rational, real) and of the main operations;
- Principles for solving polynomial, fractional, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, irrational equations and inequalities;
- Properties of elementary functions;

- Simplification of expressions with powers, exponentials, logarithms, trigonometric functions;
- Solving polynomial, fractional, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, irrational equations and inequalities;
- Graph elementary functions;
- Interpret and solve problems of logic and verbal understanding
