### Methodology and grading

#### Methodology

**Lecture:**Pass on knowledge and activate cognitive processes in students, encouraging their participation.**Problem-based learning:**Develop active learning strategies through problem solving that promote thinking, experimentation, and decision making in the student.**Solving exercises and problems:**Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.

#### Grading

In February the student will be able to choose between a system of continuous evaluation system or a final evaluation system.

**Continuous evaluation system:**

The final grade will be obtained as follows:

FINAL MARK = 0.85xE + 0.1xP + 0.05xT, where

E = final exam mark (0-10)

P = computer exam mark (0-10)

T = The assistance at the problems workshops and / or participation in the class , seminars, tutorials, etc. punctuation for tutorials (0-10). The number of participations and the quality of them will be valued fundamentally.

To pass the course it will be necessary to obtain E with a mark of at least 4 points out of 10 and, in addition, obtain a FINAL NOTE equal to or greater than 5 points (out of 10). Those who do not meet both requirements, can take a single exam (in which the three blocks will be evaluated) on the day set for the February ordinary exam.DESCRIPTION AND QUALIFICATION OF EXAMINATIONS:

The exams will be based on the resolution of problems and issues related to the contents of the subject. The score of each exam will be about 10 points. The subject consists of three blocks of differentiated content, so the final exam will consist of three parts, one for each block, with different weights. Each block of contents is composed of the following didactic units:

1. BLOCK 1: Didactic Units 1 and 2. (30% of the E mark).

2. BLOCK 2: Didactic units 3 and 4. (40% of the E mark).

3. BLOCK 3: Didactic Units 5, 6 and 7. (30% of the E mark).Therefore, E is calculated as follows:

If the test scores of each of the blocks are equal to or greater than 4 points out of 10:E = 0.3 x Exam Mark Block 1 + 0.4 x Exam Mark Block 2+ 0.3 x Exam Mark Block 3

If any of the test scores of the blocks is less than 4 points out of 10:

E = Minimum {Exam Mark Block 1, Exam Mark Block 2, Exam Mark Block 3}DESCRIPTION AND QUALIFICATION OF PRACTICES:

There will be an exam in the last practice session, in the computer classroom. It will consist in the resolution of problems through the DERIVE program.**Final evaluation system:**

The final gmark will be obtained as follows: FINAL NOTE = 0.85xE + 0.1xP + 0.05T, where

E = final mark of a single exam (0-10), which will be held on the day set for the ordinary February session.

P = qualification of the exam of computer practices (0-10), which will be carried out after the development exam, on the day set for the ordinary call of February.

T = punctuation for tutorials, participation and attendance to class, workshops and to the activities that are programmed (0-10).

To pass the subject, it is necessary to have a FINAL MARK equal to or greater than 5 (out of 10).For the September and December exams, the mark is obtained by FINAL MARK = 0.9xE + 0.1xP, where E is the qualification obtained in the examination carried out in the corresponding call and P corresponds to the qualification of the exam of practices.

#### Correction criteria

Each problem or issue of both the development exams and the corresponding to practices, will be scored according to the quality of its approach and numerical resolution.
