Learning outcome 
Assessment activity 
Weight (%)  It allows test resit 
Minimum required grade 

RA12  RA16  Written tests  80%  Yes  5/10 
RA12  RA16  Assignments and reports  15%  No  0 
RA12  RA16  Active participation  5%  No  0 
If the minimum required grade of the written tests is not reached, the final mark will be, at most, 4.9/10
Continuous assessment is carried out by means of several written tests distributed throughout the semester as follows:
Ordinary assessment:
Written tests (individual):
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):
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.
Introduction to numerical techniques. Direct and iterative methods for linear systems. Methods for nonlinear equations and systems. Interpolation. Numerical integration. Numerical treatment of differential equations.
