### Description:

We introduce basic concepts related to fractional calculus for students and curious people eager to expand their mathematical tools and put their brains grooving into a fascinating abstract space. Nowadays, knowledge of informatics concepts is vital for working in whichever discipline, but mathematical tools facilitate your high performance. *Don’t work hard; work smart!*

### Intended audience:

Students of any discipline and degree are welcome.

### Pre-requisites:

Basic calculus concepts.

### Duration:

Three (3) theoretical and practical sessions, each of two (2) hours.
