Oral explanation of subjects. A review of subjects addressed in the previous lecture will be done at the beginning of each lecture. At the end of each lecture will be done a summary of the main themes given.
Resolve problems, examples and practical cases, with the pupils. The problems solved are concerned to subjects addressed in the previous theoretical lectures.
a) The evaluation of the students is done through the completion of two tests and exam.
b) The approval requires the achievement of at least 10 points in the final exam.
c) The waiver of the examination presupposes obtaining at least 10 values in the average of the two tests. In this case, the value thus calculated, constitutes the final classification.
