Tests and exercises : Joint exercises in class (45%) and individual tests (5%) (in itinere) directed to solve and clarify problems and questions accurately selected among the most suitable to verify correct learning of lectures (50%).
Assessment method : With “in itinere” positive results votation will be assigned at the of semester and recorded within January. Otherwise the assessment method consists of a selective written exam and (when required by the examining staff) an oral discussion.
