### Methodology and grading

#### Methodology

**Case studies:**Learning through the analysis of actual or simulated cases in order to interpret and resolve them by employing various alternative solution procedures.**Cooperative learning:**Develop active learning through cooperative working strategies among students and promote shared responsibility to reach group goals.**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.**Project-based learning:**Realization of a project to solve a problem, applying acquired learning and promoting abilities related to planning, design, performing activities, and reaching conclusions.**Solving exercises and problems:**Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.

#### Grading

June The Final mark will be the sum of the score obtained in the part of continuous evaluation and Final exam: follows each of the parties; 1) continuous assessment: 25% of the global note. a) Test exam(10% of the global note) . The examination will have multiple questions with four answer choices. The wrong answers penalize a well at a rate of four bad subtraction. (The test as well as the date of the same (April/May) will be specified with at least one month in advance .b) A Final practice (10%). (Students must deliver at the end of may a practice that can be made individually or by couples. c) assistance and participation in class (5% of the global note) 2) theoretical and practical exam: 75% of the global note. Exam of problems develop with questions about concepts and theoretical and practical methods of the subject.

To make the average student must obtain a minimum score of 5 (out of 10) in the final exam

September and december continuous assessment note is not saved for the September and December. The exam will be the 100% of the final grade .
