Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes
This Curricular Unit aims to develop students’ skills as citizens and as future media professionals, related to Statistics and Probability. It is intended to ensure that students: (i) develop their mathematical knowledge in terms of concepts and processes of organization, analysis and interpretation of data and probabilities, (ii) be able to critically read and interpret studies including quantitative methodologies, to contribute to their professional development and updating and (iii) develop skills in the conception of statistical studies, with regard to data collection and to its correct interpretation, contributing to the development of an investigative attitude as a future professional.
In this Curricular Unit we focus on the active participation of students, either in individual work or in group work. The sessions will be organized taking into account the resolution of problems and its discussion to tackle the contents of the CU and carry out activities to prepare for the design of a project.
Tutorial support consists of monitoring guiding to prepare and present a project and answer questions about the issues under study.
Demonstration of the teaching methodologies coherence with the curricular unit's intended learning outcomes
Lanned learning outcomes are located at three levels: (a) mobilize concepts of statistics and probability in problem solving, (b) provide a critical interpretation of statistical studies; (c) apply the knowledge acquired to real life situations .
Thus, the activities to be developed include: (i) reading and discussion of scientific and technical texts of different nature, (ii) exploration and critical analysis of relevant issues, (iii) search for relevant information to the deepening of the themes of this Curricular Unit, (iv) development of an investigative project involving the use of quantitative and qualitative variables
Assessment methodologies and evidences
The evaluation will take into account (i) the development of a project of statistic investigation (40%), and (ii) a written test (60%).
In order to complete the course in the form of continuous assessment it is necessary to have in the written test, a minimum of 70 points (out of 200).
Students with special statute, in the event that they are unable to attend classes, must negotiate with each teacher (in the first 15 days of classes) the way that will be used for their evaluation, as well as the most convenient timetable.
Students that do not meet continues assessment requirement will have a final exam.
