- 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.
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
The final grade will be between 0 and 10 points, being essential to obtain at least 5 points to pass the course.
1) Attendance at practices and resolution of questionnaires related to them. Maximum score in this activity: 1 point.
2) Seminars of problems. At the website of the university, 4 series of 3 problems each (for a total of 12 problems) will be provided. Each of these series will be discussed in the seminar classes, after the teaching of the corresponding theory. Along with the problems, answer sheets will be included in which students can write their name and the solutions to them. Students may submit answer sheets only if they are willing to put in the classroom and to their classmates how they have solved the problem. The teacher will indicate well in advance where and when the student will submit the answer sheets. At the beginning of the seminar the teacher will choose, at random, one of them for each of the problems under discussion, calling for the student, who must explain to their classmates the solution to the problem and answer a few questions about it. 0.1 point will be awarded for every problem well solved. Those students whose answer sheets are selected by the teacher and are neither present in the classroom or not able to explain how they have solved the problem will lose all the score for the series to which the problem belongs. Those students who do not pass the course at the end will not keep the score in the series of problems in the next academic year. Maximum score in this activity: 1 point.
3) The exam will consist of two parts, being able to get up to 8 points in this section. Students who do not perform this exam will be considered as not presented in the ordinary call.
- Multiple choice questions: Test of 25 questions with four alternative answers of which the student will have to choose the right option. Each question is worth 0.2 points. Each wrong answer will deduct one third of a well answered question, with no discounting score from unanswered questions. Maximum score in this part: 5 points.
- Two problems. Each problem will be worth 1.5 points. Only will score the final answers to each of the sections of the problem. Maximum score in this part: 3 points.
