4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Lectures (M1, M3, M4, M5): Theoretical contents and related practical examples will be developed in these sessions.

Seminars (M6, M7, M8, M10, M12, M13): 15 one-hour long classroom sessions will be devoted for solving problems, with special emphasis on applications to economics. Additionally, 15 one-hour long computer lab sessions will be devoted for solving problems by using the software Mathematica.

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. Detail:

* S1. ACTIVE ATTENDANCE: 1.0 points (10%):        Theory: 0.5 points                                                        Practises: 0.5 points will be divided by the total number of hours attended. Learning results R12 and R13.

* S2. THEORETICAL CONCEPTS: 7.0 points (70%): Final written exam about the theoretical concepts and related exercises. Learning results R11 and R14.

* S3. CLASSROOM EXERCISES: 1.0 points (10%): Short classroom tests. Learning results R11 and R13.

*S4. COMPUTER LAB PRACTICES: 1.0 points (10%): Computer exam. Computer guidelines may be used in the exam. Learning results R11 and R13.

2. Marks from S1, S3 and S4 will be maintained during the current academic year. Students who attend the final written exam (S2) and/or the computer exam (S4) will appear as 'SHOWN' in the grade list for the corresponding official exam call

3. The final continuous grade will be the sum of the marks obtained from S1, S2, S3, S4.

Exceptionally and whenever it is accredited enough, the students could be evaluated taking into account items S2 and S4 only (with weight 80% and 20%, respectively).
