Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Continuous assessment will be done by:
• two written tests, to be held on November 18, 2021 and
• 25 January 2022 (from 6 pm to 8 pm);
•six mini-tests to be performed on the computer using the Maple program.
The first written test will have the quotation of 8 values and the second written exam the quotation of 9 values.
Each quiz, lasting from 20 to 30 minutes, will be priced at 0.5 value.
The final classification (FC) of the teaching-learning process will be given according to the following formula:
CF = P1 + P2 + MT
where P1 and P2 are the marks obtained in the written tests and MT is the sum of the marks obtained in the 6 mini-tests.
Students with a final grade greater than or equal to 10 (after rounding) are approved.
Students who have a minimum final grade of 5 points (after rounding) and at least 70% of class attendance are admitted to the exam.
Even students already pass continuous assessment
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
