Teaching methods

lectures will be organized from remote in asynchronous way (files available on the Elly page of the course)

Assessment methods and criteria

Just written examination, with exercises and theoretical questions. In case of impossibility of performing the examination in presence, for unpredictable and serious reasons, the examination will still be just written but performed from remote, through approaches that will be explained when closer to the date of the exams.
