Learning outcomes With this curricular unit, it is intended that the student obtain computational tools that will assist him in the accomplishment of practical activities (experimental and laboratory). At the end of this curricular unit the student should be able to:
a) perform simple mathematical operations with scalars, vectors or matrices;
b) solve simple problems by exploring the symbolic and graphical capabilities of the computer;
c) programming small routines;
d) perform data analysis, treatment and visualization routines;
e) plan experimental activities in a research logic.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The curricular unit works with practical classes in a laboratory equipped with computers. The curricular unit will be taught in an interactive way and with the student following in real time the procedures presented by the teacher. In addition, the student is encouraged to participate in classes, to interact with the teacher and with colleagues, and to work autonomously, in the form of exercises, formulation and problem-solving. Continuous assessment will be done by performing four tests, to be carried out after each of the main points of the program. The student can also take a final exam quoted for 20 values.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
