Exposure of concepts.
Assisted laboratory experimentation.
The evaluation has 3 components: reports of the experimental studies, online questionnaires and collaborative participation, challenge and final presentation.
The final grade is calculated by the following expression NF = 0.4 Nr + 0.2 Nq + 0.4 Na with partial notes rounded at the decimal.
A grade of 0 is given in case a student misses a laboratory class and respective report. However, one laboratory class will be specifically for students with a justification of not-presence.
