  • Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    • In class, the ideas underlying the curriculum of this course are discussed, and multiple examples and application exercises are analyzed.
    • For each topic in this course, a set of application exercises is presented. Students are encouraged to solve these exercises and to raise any doubts they may have.
    • All supporting materials and relevant information will be shared with students through Moodle.
    • The assessment includes a continuous component, which involves completing three 40-minute tests and a final exam (Final Exam or Make-up).
      • The average of the three tests is denoted as A, and the Exam Grade is denoted as B.
      • If A > 9.5, the student is approved for the course and can take the exam to improve the grade. In this case, the Final Grade = max(A, B).
      • If A < 9.5, the student is not approved for the course and must take the exam to obtain approval.
    • Students who achieve a final grade of at least 10 points are considered approved.
