Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The teacher explains the concepts of Chemistry, and the theoretical classes are integrated with practical and/or laboratory classes, in order to become participatory classes, with a view to imparting knowledge in an integrated, not dispersed way, leading students to build and to correlate different facts through the discussion of concrete issues and problems. The evaluation will be continuous, through tests about the topics covered in theoretical and practical/laboratory classes, and through evaluation of the overall laboratory performance (which includes preparation of the work to be carried out, results and discussion of the same, and attitudes in classes and laboratory performance) .
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
