*CB3- That students have the ability to collect and interpret relevant data (usually within their area of study) in order to make judgments that include reflection on relevant issues of a social, scientific or ethical nature.**CB5- That students have developed those learning skills necessary to undertake further studies with a high degree of autonomy.*

*CG1- To apply the acquired analytical and abstraction skills, intuition, and logical thinking to identify and analyze complex problems, and to seek and formulate solutions in a multidisciplinary environment.**CE18- To analyze, validate and interpret mathematical models of real-world situations, using the tools provided by differential and integral calculus of several variables, complex analysis, integral transforms and numerical methods to solve them.*

*RA12- To understand the concept of numerical approximation, its importance and limitations.**RA13- To master the most basic techniques for the numerical solution of nonlinear equations and systems.**RA14- To master the most common interpolation techniques.**RA15- To get to know the most usual numerical integration techniques with error estimates.**RA16- To acquire some basic notions about the numerical solution of differential equations.*

Learning outcome | Assessment activity | Weight (%) | Resit assessment |

RA12 - RA16 | Written tests | 80% | Yes |

RA12 - RA16 | Assignments and reports | 15% | No |

RA12 - RA16 | Active participation | 5% | No |

Continuous assessment is carried out by means of several written tests distributed throughout the semester as follows:

**Ordinary assessment:**

Written tests (individual):

- Test A: lessons 1, 2 and 3, with a weight of 40% in the final grade.
- Test B: lessons 4, 5 and 6, with a weight of 40% in the final grade.

In order to pass the course, the following two conditions must be fulfilled:

- the average of the grades of Test A and Test B is not less than 5/10;

- the weighted average of the grades of Test A and Test B, the assignments and reports, and the active participation is not less than 5/10 (with the weights indicated in the table).

**Resit assessment:**

Written test (individual):

- Test R: lessons 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, with a weight of 80% in the final grade.

In order to pass the course, the following two conditions must be fulfilled:

- the grade of Test R is not less than 5/10;

- the weighted average of the grades of Test R, the assignments and reports, and the active participation is not less than 5/10 (with the weights indicated in the table).

If a student takes part in a number of assessment activities whose total weight is less than 50%, his/her final grade will be *Absent*.
