Learning outcomes In this course we will explore the key ideas of differential and integral calculus relevant to the Life Sciences

The student will work examples, analytic and graphically, and it is hoped that he will be able to communicate orally, discuss and write in a clear and organized way. -Apply the basics of differential calculus.
-Calculate the mean values ??of functions.
-Apply the concept of partial derivatives to solve optimization problems and linear approximation of functions of several variables.
-Identify and solve Ordinary Differential Equations and interpret the solutions.
-Demonstrate skills of effective oral and written communication, presenting ideas in a clear, logical and organized, supported by the correct use of notations.
-Using new technologies to show computational capacity to solve problems.
-Demonstrate resourcefulness in self-study, showing ability to study independently.
