Teaching methodologies and assessment
The exercises are developed with predefined times (25% each). In its conception and realization, collective exercise follows the design methodology: problem; problem definition; components of the problem; data collection / research; data analysis; creativity; research of colors and materials; experimentation - conducting trials; definition of a model; verification; solution. The evaluation is continuous (face-to-face); intermediate (at the end of each stage ¿conception, project, execution) and final (at the end of the semester, focusing on all the work done). Each student must be involved in all stages. EVALUATION: 50% mural painting project (Professor Inês Marques) 50% exercises on abstraction (Professor Margarida Prieto) This PA does not have a 1st examination period. This uc does not have 1st period of examination. In the 2nd period exam all the complete exercises are presented and exhibited with exposure criteria.
