PRACTICAL SESSIONS

There will be five practical tasks related to several topics explained in the theory classes. In each of them, the student will have to write a report solving a given problem.

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Not required.

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

  1. Attendance and participation (5%)
  • Attendance will be controlled in the practical sessions and the active participation of the student will be taken into account. A minimum of 70% of attendance to theory classes is required.
  1. Theoretical concepts (90%)
  • Final exam with theory questions and problems. A mark over 0 will be required for the theory part of the exam. The weight of the theory will be 20% and the weight of the problems 80%.
  • The following learning results are assessed: 3
  • The following skills are assessed: GC4 y CG1
  1. Lab practical sessions / usage of ICT tools (5%)
  • Practical sessions related with the content of the theory classes will be given. The student will have to prepare a report for each of the practical tasks and the average mark of these reports must be equal or over 5 in order to pass the practical part of the subject. To pass this subject, the student must pass both, the final exam and the practical tasks. If a student does not pass the practical part, he will not be able to pass the subject in the Ordinary exam (Convocatoria Ordinaria) and will have to sit an exam on the practical part for the Extraordinary exam (Convocatoria Extraordinaria)
  • The following learning results are assessed: 3
  • The following skills are assessed: GC4 y CG1
