4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The methodology consists of the following activities:

  • Lectures: presentation of theoretical concepts and problem-solving exercises and doubts. 
  • Practical sessions:  scheduling algorithms and applications for solving geometric problems. 

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

In response to the provisions of art. 13 of the Regulation of Academic Regime and Evaluation of the students of the University of Jaén, the evaluation of the subject will be global.

The subject is exceeded if the total count of all parts detailed in the Evaluation System has a value equal to or greater than 5 points.

Furthermore, the class attendance must be at least 50% of the total number of theoretical and practical classes. The theoretical exam must score at least 4 points, computing 30% of the final score. This exam evaluates competences CC6R and CC7R and learning results R3 y R4.

The practical exercises could be done in pairs, except any of them which should be performed individually. The evaluation of the practical part will be performed by submission and defense of the work with the score of the 60% of the subject. This part evaluates competences CC6R and CC7R, as well as CB2R, CB3R and CB5R. The learning results are R3, R4 and R5.

Throughout the course a set of of theoretical and theoretical-practical exercises are proposed,  counting 5% of the total grade. This part evaluates competences CC6R and CC7R and learning results R3, R4 and R5.

The regular attendance and class participation counted another 5%.
