Learning activities and methodology
Learning activities: THEORETICAL-PRACTICAL CLASSES: In them, the knowledge that students should acquire is presented. Students receive class notes and basic references to help them to follow classes and do subsequent work. Practical exercises and problems will be solved by the students, and tests will be held to assess they have acquired the necessary skills. TUTORING: Individualized assistance to students by the teacher. INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP STUDENT WORK. LABORATORIES: Practical computer exercises. FINAL EXAM. The knowledge, skills and abilities acquired throughout the course will be assessed globally. Methodology: LECTURES: The teacher presents contents with support of computer and audiovisual media. The main concepts of the subject are developed and materials and bibliography are provided to complement students' learning. PRACTICES: Resolution of practical cases, problems, etc. proposed by the teacher, individually or in groups. TUTORING: Individualized assistance to students by the teacher. LABORATORY PRACTICES: Applied / experimental teaching in laboratories under the supervision of a tutor.
