Exposition of the fundamental theoretical concepts to solve problems in theoretical classes lasting 2 hours. Resolution of exercises selected in a problem book in practical classes of three hours.
MA1 has a component of evaluation called Frequency, which is binary (Suficient/Unsuficient). To obtain Frequency it is necessary to complete 2/3 of the challenges launched in classes.
The evaluation can be carried out continuously over the course through three theoretical / practical tests. If the student fails this evaluation model or decide to improve their score obtained can always turn to a final exam. All students are admitted to the final exam.
Continuous assessment comprises three tests (T1, T2 and T3) and the approval is based on the following formula:
0.2 * T1 + 0.4 * T2 + 0.4 * T3> = 9.5 where T1, T2 and T3 range from 0 to 20.
All tests are scheduled for a specific date and time.
T1 and T2 are online, T3 is presencial. Oral exams may be required.
Oral exam is demanded for final classifications >= 16.
If the student is not successful in this continuous assessment component to its final approval will depend only on a final exam worth between 0 and 20. The student is approved with a minimum grade of 9.5val Exam.
