Theoretical classes, with digital support and application examples.
Resolution of exercises and application examples.
Laboratory works, illustrating basic experimental techniques, security rules, spectroscopy applications and simple chemical reactions.
60% of the classification for the theoretical component and 40% of the classification for the practical component.
Each of the components of the discipline and their constituents can not have an evaluation lower than 9,5 values
(classification from 0 to 20).
Classification of the theoretical component:
- Average of 2 tests (75%)
- Self-evaluation by the student taking into account their presence and work respecting theoretical-practical classes (25%). This parameter has a maximum ponderation effect of more 1 value over the final score of tests evaluation. .
Obligatory attendance in 2/3 of existing theoretical-practical classes.
Practical component classification:
Evaluation by the teacher (75%) taking into account the presence in practical classes, preparation of classes (laboratory notebook) and student performance during them.
Mandatory presence in 2/3 of the existing practical classes.
Average of the evaluation made by colleagues (except the group colleague) (25%) which will take place in the last practical class of the semester, by presenting one of the works (indicated by the teacher) made by the working group members in the classes. . The evaluation by colleagues cannot add more than 1 value to the evaluation made by the teacher. None of the evaluation components and their constituent parameters may be less than 9.5 values.
