The exam consists of two parts, one for each of the two modulus of Matematica Generale (6 CFU) and of Laboratorio di Informatica (3 CFU).
To participate to the test of each modulus, the student must register through SIFA to the module itself.
The final grade is obtained after passing the tests related to the two modulus.
The two tests must be passed within the same academic year.
The grade resulting from the weighted average of the grades reported in the two modulus (approximated to the unit by default / excess depending on the decimal number 0-4 / 5-9) will be registered by the professor of the modulus of Matematica Generale.
To pass the exam relating to the modulus of Matematica Generale it is necessary to know the theory (definitions, theorem statements) presented during the lectures and to be able to solve the types of exercises illustrated during the exercises lectures.
The test of the modulus of Matematica Generale consists of exercises and some multiple choice questions on the contents of the theory. The test is considered passed if at least 18 points are obtained out of a total of 30.
There will be 7 tests distributed during the academic year, dates appearing on SIFA.
The written test can be replaced by passing two in itinere tests, the first indicatively in mid-November, the second in the same date of the January test.
The two in itinere tests are passed if in each one a score of at least 16 points is obtained out of a total of 30 and if the average of the two scores (approximated by excess to the unit) is greater or equal to 18.
Candidates must attend the written tests or in itinere tests with a valid identity document with a photograph during which it is not allowed to consult any type of material, nor the use of calculators.
In case the student wants to improve the grade obtained in the written test or in the itinere tests or to obtain the Laude, the student must also pass an oral exam that will focus on the detailed program indicated on the website at the end of the semester (definitions, statements of theorems, proofs of theorems).
In the event of a negative evaluation of the oral exam, the mark obtained in the written test could be modified accordingly or even the written test will have to be repeated.
Traditional. Tutoring activity for the preparation of the written tests.
