|Lecture||Description of the contents of the subject.|
|Problem solving, classroom exercises||The student will have to solve several exercises during the semester. There will be a deadline for each exercise.||20%|
|Laboratory practicals||Lab assignments must work properly, and the students might be required to do some exams in order to probe they did their own work.||30%|

|Other comments and second call|
The marks assigned to the exercises given during the semester will be that of one of them, chosen randomly. All the assignments must be submitted before the deadlines.
Lab assignments will consist in developing software and must be finished in due times, and the students have to pass every single one. The lecturer will choose the assessment methodology for each lab assignment .
To pass this subject, it is required that the student gets a minimum of 50% the maximum qualification in both, the lab assignments and in the written exam. The sum of all the qualifications must be at least 50%.
The second call will consist in a written exam only, being its mark added to those obtained during the semester for the lab assignments and the exercises.
