Teaching methodology

Theory classes:
- lectures developing the theoretical aspects of the subject.
- lectures and participatory classes aimed at applying theory to problems.


Workshop/laboratory classes:
- participatory workshop sessions in which students solve problems in groups or individually.
- participatory laboratory sessions in which students complete problems individually or in groups using mathematical software.

Evaluation methodology

Technical and transferable competencies account for 80% and 20% of the subject, respectively. The transferable competency mark will be calculated on the basis of Atenea activities and from the note of the subject.
- Workshop mark (T): it evaluates the student's performance and achievement of objectives in workshop / laboratory sessions and Atenea.
- Mark of the mid-semester exam (P).
- Mark of the final exam (F).


The final mark is calculated as:

Note = 0.2 * T + max (0.3 * P+0.5 * F,0.8 * F)

Not taking the final exam means having a NP of M2 grade.
