Teaching method

Classes consist on an oral explanation of the theory which is illustrated by examples. Most results are proven.  Students have access to copies of the theory and proposed exercises.

Evaluation method

Frequency

To obtain frequency, first-time students must attend at least two-thirds of pratical classes.

Final approval can be obtained through continuous evaluation or by final exam.

 


Continuous evaluation

The continuous evaluation consists of two tests whose average will be the grade of the continuous evaluation.

 

 

 

Final exam

A final exam is held at the time of appeal. Students may choose to on the day of the final exam repeat one of the tests (same subject, different questions) with the exam grade equal to the average of the test taken during the semester plus the test taken on the day of the exam. To repeat one of the tests, each student must communicate this intention at least one week in advance of the exam date.

 

Grade improvement

Anyone wishing to take the grade improvement recourse exam should apply for grade improvement.
