Evaluation Methodology:
The curricular unit teaching methodology is expositive. The evaluation of student learning is done in a periodic evaluation system, with the realization of individual frequencies and group work. The group work must be original and subjected to UMa's plagiarism control. In the supplementary season it is possible to recover only the note of one individual frequency of the normal season. The group work component can not be recovered in the complementary season. The moments of evaluation of the normal and complementary season are subjected to the criterion of minimum grade (8 values). It is done in a periodic evaluation system, which necessarily involves two group work (2x30%) and two individual frequencies (2x20%). Final score = T1 (30%)+T2 (30%)+F1 (20%)+F2 (20%) In the special season the result of the evaluation is equal to the result of the examination of the special season. The presence of the students in the classes is obligatory.
