In theoretical classes, topics of the syllabus will be approached and participation of students will be frequently encouraged in order to develop their critical thinking and their ability to understand and relate issues. Students will be asked to solve problems that will be proposed in theoretical-practical classes and their doubts will be clarified by means of the dialogue among them and between them and the teacher. The laboratorial assignments will be presented, briefly but in a complete way, by groups of students who are going to carry them out in a laboratory.
