Evaluation of RAS
The first result from the student learning is evaluated through the implementation of approximated calculations, including error estimations, as obtained from the solution of optimization problems related to those found in the Electrical Power Engineering profession. These problems at the beginning are textually formulated (without the use of the mathematical notation). In a second step the Differential and Integral Calculus will be used to solve them.
The 2th, 3th, 4th and 5th results from the student learning are evaluated in a systematic way through different partial and final exams because these learning results constitute essential parts in the formation of the mathematical way of thinking required to work as an Electrical Power Engineer.
