Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The U.C. will be taught in mixed classroom / video conference using expository classes interspersed with practical sessions in which students perform step-by-step tutorials. The tutorial guidance classes are aimed at practicing the acquired concepts, where the student solves a set of problems or researches alternatives to the solutions proposed by the teacher. Zoom and the Moodle platform will be the most used resources in distance learning and in supporting autonomous work.
The evaluation is made according to the following components: Series of problems, Final Assignement, and Attendance.
Minimum grade for approval in the U.C.: 10.
This U.C. has no exam.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
