The final grade will be obtained as follows:
FINAL GRADE = 0.75xEF + 0.2xEC + 0.05xT,
EF = final exam grade (0-10);
EC = computer practice score (0-10).
T = score for tutorials, participation in class and in activities to be programmed (0-10). The number of units and the quality of the units will be fundamentally evaluated.
To pass the subject will be necessary to have passed EF with a grade of at least 5 points out of 10 and EC with a grade of at least 4 points out of 10 and also obtain a FINAL NOTE equal or higher than 5 points.
CHARACTERIZATION AND FINAL QUALIFICATION OF EXAMINATIONS (EF):
The exams will be written to solve problems and questions related to the contents of the subject. Each problem or issue will be scored according to the quality of its approach and numerical resolution.
The subject consists of two blocks of differentiated contents, so the final exam will consist of two parts, one for each block.
Each block of contents is composed of the following didactic units:
1. BLOCK 1 (STATISTICS): Didactic units 1, 2 and 3.
2. BLOCK 2 (OPTIMIZATION): Didactic Units 4 and 5.
The weight of each block is as follows:
1. BLOCK 1: 50% of the EF score.
2. BLOCK 2: 50% of the EF score.
In order to facilitate the passing of the subject, two opportunities will be given for each block, i.e. two exams will be carried out for each of the blocks. The temporary programming of the exams is as follows:
1. The first exam (first opportunity) of each block will be made during the course once the corresponding contents have been given. The first exam of BLOCK 1 will be at the end of MARCH or at the beginning of APRIL and the first exam of BLOCK 2 will be the 24th or 27th of MAY.
2. The second exam (second chance) of each of the blocks will be held on June 10, the day of the date determined for the final exam of the subject.
IMPORTANT: To pass EF using the first opportunity of each block, students must obtain a score of at least 2 points out of 5 or, equivalently 4 points out of 10, in each exam.
Those who in the ordinary call of June had not passed EF with at least 5 points out of 10 points, will be examined of both blocks in the following calls.
CHARACTERIZATION AND SCORING OF COMPUTER PRACTICES (EC): Two options: Option 1: Attendance at all computer practices with good exploitation. Obtaining an average score equal to or greater than 4 points in the two partial exams conducted throughout the course, which will consist of the resolution of problems using EXCEL, to do this students may use additional material on a USB device with the practices realized in class. Option 2: Taking a final exam, which will consist of the resolution of problems using EXCEL, to do this students may only use the help offered by EXCEL itself but not additional material.
CHARACTERIZATION AND QUALIFICATION SCORE FOR TUTORIALS, PARTICIPATION IN CLASS AND IN THE ACTIVITIES TO BE PROGRAMED:
The number of activities and the quality of the activities will be fundamentally evaluated. A minimum grade is not necessary to overcome this part.
A UNIQUE FINAL EXAM ALTERNATIVE
Those students who want to make a unique final exam must make the written (EF) and computer exams plannedfor the day of the corresponding official call. To pass the subject a final grade of at least 5 points out of 10 points must be obtained, the final grade is calculated as follows:
FINAL GRADE = 0.75xEF + 0.25xEC
