Lesson period
Second semester
Teaching methods:
The course will be held mainly by online synchronous online lectures using Teams, with the exception of some asynchronous lessons (video lessons) and some in-presence lessons with group activities (about every 15 days).
All lessons will be recorded. The recordings will be available on the online course.
Students who do not participate in face-to-face lessons will carry out an alternative online activity that will allow them to develop the same skills as the activity proposed in the classroom.
The schedule of lessons and all the details of the activities will be published in the online course. Any updates will also be communicated through announcements in the online course (please read often mail @studenti.unimi.it)
The methods and criteria for attending face-to-face lessons will be published in time in the online course. Booking via app is required to attend the lesson in presence
Students unable to attend face-to-face synchronous lessons, can be considered to be attending if carry out alternative online activities.

Reference materials:
Attending students must refer to all the lessons, materials and resources published in the online course, in addition to the bibliography already reported in the program

Learning verification procedures and assessment criteria:
The exam is oral and takes place in Teams (videoconferencing), according to the indications provided by the University. The details and calendars of the oral examinations are published and constantly updated in the online course.
in order to assess the autonomy of judgment in collecting and interpreting the elements useful for solving problems, the entire oral exam is carried out using the textbook (open book exam). During the oral exam, the student must therefore demonstrate that he can use the texts in the analysis of the proposed problems, as well as comment on graphs and diagrams.
