Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione 
There are five examination dates (two in JanuaryFebruary, two in JuneJuly, one in September). The course consists in two moduli, one in Mathematical Methods (ref. G. Arioli and G. Grillo) and one in Numerical Methods (ref. C. Vergara and P. Zunino). The exam in Mathematical Methods is written and consists in both questions on the theory and exercises. The exam in Numerical Methods consists in a written part and an optional oral part. The written part of both moduli takes place in the same day. Students can take the oral exam for the Numerical Methods modulus only when the corresponding written grade is at least 15 out of 30.
The final grade is the (rounded up) arithmetic mean of the grades obtained in the two moduli. To get the grade “30 cum laude” one should obtain such grade in both the subparts. If this is not the case, a single "30 cum laude" in one of the parts will be considered as 30 in performing the arithmetic mean. It is possible to take the exam in one modulus (Mathematical or Numerical Methods) in one of the five examination dates and in the other modulus in another examination date, provided such dates are in the same academic year. It is mandatory to take the written and the oral part of the Numerical Methods modulus within the same examination date, i.e. it is not possible to give the written part in one examination date and the oral part in another one.
The participation tothe written exam of one of the two moduli, automatically discards any previous grade obtained for that modulus, even if the student chooses to withdraw.
NOTES
1) Mathematical Methods in Engineering and Numerical Methods in Engineering are also single courses which can be taken independently.
2) Browsing texts, notes, and electronic devices are not allowed during the tests. It is mandatory to bring an ID (e.g. identity card, driver’s licence,…) in order to be identified.
3) Registration to the exam is mandatory. Unregistered students will not be admitted.
