Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Participation in the seminars is mandatory.
Course-unit credit is awarded on condition of having attended the seminars actively and passed the control test.
Examination has a practical and a theoretical part. In the practical part student has to illustrate the given tasks on particular examples.
Theoretical part includes questions related to the subject-matter presented at the lectures.
