EXAM DESCRIPTION

The examination consists of a written part and an oral discussion

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The written part is made up of 10 questions that cover all the material of the course. These questions will verify both the operations through problem solving and the theory studied during the course, like definitions and theorems. During the oral test there will be a discussion about the written part and two to three additional questions.
