4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

A1 - Lecture classes in large group is the methodology to be followed in the exhibition classes in large group. They will be a mix of introductory activities, masterclasses and exposition of theory and general examples in the classroom designated by the Centre for the subject.

The student must follow the lectures with the material delivered for that purpose, either notes or slide show, and they must be completed with their own notes and the subsequent revision of basic and/or recommended bibliography.  Active, respectful and responsible, either to ask questions or to respond to questions formulated by the teacher, or other requirements will be evaluated positively by the corresponding factor.

The autonomous student work, should focus on the revision of the concepts and theoretical aspects seen in the class, exercises, as well as the study with the material provided by the teacher, the student and bibliography notes.  In addition, sessions of lecture classes controls will be carried out to monitor the progression and assimilation of concepts from the learner.

A2 - Small group classes work in small group classes will be based firstly on practical activities in the laboratory. The work of the student will focus on the development of applications, or learning tasks designated by the teacher, which will culminate in the achievement of the objectives set for the practice. Secondly, small group classes consist of solving exercises and practical issues of the subject. Finally, also seminars will be held to deepen aspects relevant and complementary to the matter.  Assistance, as well as active participation, respectful and responsible, either to raise questions or to respond to questions from the Professor, or the requirements will be evaluated positively in its corresponding factor. With respect to personal work, this will focus on completing the work started in the laboratory and the resolution of problems that could not be completed in the corresponding session.  In addition, the kinds of small group sessions controls will be carried out to monitor progression and assimilation of concepts from the learner.

A3 - Group tutoring group tutoring will be used for the resolution of questions of both practical concepts like theoreticians of the students.  Assistance, as well as active participation, respectful and responsible, either to raise questions or to respond to questions from the Professor, or the requirements will be evaluated positively in its corresponding factor.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

At the end of the semester the student can choose between 2 modalities of evaluation: continuous or non-continuous. CONTINUOUS EVALUATION to pass the course is a necessary condition that students obtain a score equal to or greater than 4.0 out of 10 in each of the evaluated aspects. The student will have the option to renounce the continuous assessment is not possible to return to it once the resignation to pass the course the student must obtain a score equal to or greater than 5.0 out of 10 in the overall computation, taking into account the preconditions. In this case need not be the final test.

NON-CONTINUOUS EVALUATION in the mode of non-continuous evaluation, a final test will be held and the weight to be assigned to each of the two parties will be: theoretical concepts of matter and realization of works, cases and exercises (70%) (S2 and S3) and practices of laboratory/computer (30%) (S4). In order to have right to a final examination of practices is compulsory pupils applying for writing, in each call, undergo this final review of practices in advance of 7 calendar days from the date of the final test to pass the course is necessary condition that students obtain a score equal to or greater than 5.0 out of 10 in each of the parts of the final test taking into account the preconditions. The matter overcome in each term will remain until the end of the course.
