Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The Geometry sessions are structured from a theoretical exposition accompanied by a technical / practical explanation of exercises, encouraging students to explore the curriculum and respective exercises, outside of contact hours, in order to stimulate an active process in understanding of these matters, with consequent public presentation and discussion of the results. The evaluation is continuous and in accordance with the evolution of the contents.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
