|Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):|
|M1. Theoretical classes are taught in person and / or remotely, using Power Point. Via Data Show.|
M2. Association with the subjects and curiosities on each theme with the practical component, allowing to promote the critical spirit of the students.
M3. Execution of analytical determinations (through experimental protocols provided) relevant to the student's knowledge.
M4. Use of the e-learning platform to store theoretical and practical teaching material and additional bibliography, and made available to the student.
Theoretical component (80%) (4ECTS): Two summative tests, 2 H (50% each of the final grade).
Laboratory component (20%) (1ECTS): A summative assessment test, 2 h (90% of the final grade) + execution of the experimental protocols and acquired knowledge (10%).
The student is "Approved" when the final grade of both components (theoretical and practical) is equal to or greater than 9.5 values.
