Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The methodology of teaching this UC focuses on student and is organized into three parts: theoretical lessons, theoretical-practical lessons and laboratory lessons. In theoretical classes are taught the syllabus, theoretical-practical classes are for resolution of application problems and in laboratory classes experiments will be performed applied to real cases and also will be learned the basic rules of safety in a laboratory.
The evaluation of this control will be continuous doing UC attendance, partial testing, evaluation of problems resolution, and in laboratory lessons will be made an assessment of the achievement of the practical work and through the analysis of the report drawn up by students. The final evaluation will be: 5% presence on lessons and oral presentation in class) + 70% written evaluation by test or exam + 25% pratical component evaluated by the report of laboratorial and research works.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
