Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria
This course is structured in two parts: one essentially theoretical and the other essentially practical. In the first part, the material is transmitted orally with multimedia slideshow support, with additional information written on the board and with example problems solved on the blackboard. In the second part, some programming techniques are taught and computer codes are developed to solve more complex problems.
