Evaluation:Discipline is of theoretical and practical nature. Daily practice in the development of small routines computing is essential to the learning process.
The evaluation is obtained alternatively by continuous evaluation or final exam.
Continuous assessment consists of three tests. The three tests are written with practical development of small routines.
The Final Exam consists of a theoretical and practical part and in the end the student must make an oral examination.
Bibliography:A list is presented to the students.
