Learning activities and methodology
AF1: THEORETICAL-PRACTICAL CLASSES. They will present the knowledge that should be acquired. They will receive the class notes and will have basic texts of reference to facilitate the follow-up of the classes and the development of the subsequent work. Exercises, practical problems on the part of the student will be solved and workshops and evaluation test will be held to acquire the necessary skills. AF2: Updated to allegation AF3: INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP WORK OF THE STUDENT. AF9: FINAL EXAM. In which the knowledge, skills and abilities acquired throughout the course will be assessed globally. MD1: THEORETICAL LESSONS. Exhibitions in class with both support of computer and audiovisual media, in which the main concepts of the subject are developed and the materials and bibliography are provided to complement the students' learning. MD2: ASSIGNMENTS. Resolution of practical use cases, problems, etc. raised by the teacher, individually or in groups. MD3: TUTORIALS.
