Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria This course lasts one semester, involving 60 hours of contact with the teaching team, 90 hours of autonomous work and 10 hours for evaluation (total: 160 hours). The approval of this course unit confers the student 6 ECTS.
The classes are organized in theoretical classes - T (theoretical approach, with complementary examples of concepts through practical problems) and practical classes - P (resolution accompanied by practical problems that cover all the programmatic contents).
The evaluation is carried out in two phases:
- Continuous assessment: performance and presentation of a practical work and a test with two components, one theoretical and another practical, the second one of much greater weight than the first, during the semester;
- Final exam (with a theoretical and practical part) for students admitted.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
