Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

Theoretical exposition with a view to deepen the necessary knowledge regarding the teaching activity Individual work, presented to the classroom, containing a scientific research with the update of one of the themes previously dealt In-lab experiment with a demonstration and the creation of a report. That report shall include a contextualization that will allow to understand in which context the experiment may be performed (the proceedings, the necessary materials, the results forecast, experimentation and conclusions) Group-work intent on furthering a theoretical depth Exam 60%;individual work 15%;group-work 15%;group report 10% Theoretical evaluation: exam (minimum passing grade of 7.0 points) Group work presented and reviewed in-class with a document delivered for the evaluation Lab-work with a written report for the evaluation. Evaluation of both the practical activity and the report Individual work presented and corrected in-class and delivered for evaluation
