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 4 illustrative laboratory works will be performed and the basic rules of safety in a laboratory will be also learned
The evaluation of this UC comprises 2 written evaluations, problems resolution, and 4 laboratory works, including report and oral presentation and discussion one of them. The final evaluation will be: 80% (written evaluation) + 20% (the theoretical component-practice and laboratory).
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
