Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria
This CU has both theoretical and prctical classes.
In the theoretical classes the teacher presents the course materials and promotes its discussion with the students. In the practical classes, the students solve practical problems using the Python programming language.

Theoretical tests (14 points - 70%) - 2 tests
Practical Project (6 points - 30%)
Presence in the 80% of the classes is required.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
