Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Lectures: Treści prezentowane na wykładzie są przekazywane w formie prezentacji multimedialnej w połączeniu z klasycznym wykładem tablicowym wzbogaconymi o pokazy odnoszące się do prezentowanych zagadnień.
  • Auditorium classes: Podczas zajęć audytoryjnych studenci na tablicy rozwiązują zadane wcześniej problemy. Prowadzący na bieżąco dokonuje stosowanych wyjaśnień i moderuje dyskusję z grupą nad danym problemem.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: No
    – Participation rules in classes: Studenci uczestniczą w zajęciach poznając kolejne treści nauczania zgodnie z syllabusem przedmiotu. Studenci winni na bieżąco zadawać pytania i wyjaśniać wątpliwości. Rejestracja audiowizualna wykładu wymaga zgody prowadzącego.
  • Auditorium classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Studenci przystępując do ćwiczeń są zobowiązani do przygotowania się w zakresie wskazanym każdorazowo przez prowadzącego (np. w formie zestawów zadań). Ocena pracy studenta może bazować na wypowiedziach ustnych lub pisemnych w formie kolokwium, co zgodnie z regulaminem studiów AGH przekłada się na ocenę końcową z tej formy zajęć.
Method of calculating the final grade:

Final Score = 0.5 Exam (written and/or oral) + 0.2 tutorials + 0.2 project + 0.1 attendence.

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:
