|Subject||Physical Chemistry 1||Code||610G01016|
|Graduate||1st four-month period
|Objective test||A1 A8 A14||Three tests during the semester. The tests will consist of short short answer questions and/or multiple-choice questions.
- First test at the first weeks of the semester. The basic principles and the formulation of quantum theory are assessed. It contributes 5% to the final mark.
- Second test at mid-semester. The applications of the basic principles of quantum theory to simple systems are assessed. It contributes 10% to the final mark.
- Third test at the end of semester. The application of quantum chemistry to atoms and molecules is assessed. It contributes 10% to the final mark.
|Mixed objective/subjective test||A1 A8 A12 A14 A15 A21 B2 B3||Final written exam at the end of semester. It will be held on the official dates approved by the Faculty Board.
All contents of the subject are assessed.
It has two different types of questions: short answer questions (50%) combined with problem solving (50%).
|Laboratory practice||A1 A8 A21 C1 C3||Assessment of skills in solving problems of Quantum Chemistry by using computer software commonly used in scientific calculations.
Attendance to all scheduled computer lab. sessions is mandatory to pass the course.
The final written report is also assessed.
|Supervised projects||A1 A8 A16 B2 B3 B5 C1 C3||Assesment of teamwork skills in resolution of problems or questions related to the contents of the seminars.
Apart from the solution of the proposed activities, the active paticipation in the face-to-face session also contribute to the assessment.
Only students who attend the seminars on a regular basis (80%) can participate and be evaluated in this activity.
Requirements to pass the course:
- Attendance to all scheduled computer lab sessions is mandatory to pass the course.
- It is compulsory the regular attendance to
- To pass the course, the final average grade has to be equal to or greater than 5 (out of a
- Students who has attended the practical sessions or the final exam will be assessed.Second opportunity of July
- According to the rules contained in “Probas de Avaliación e Actas de Cualificación de Grao e Mestrado”, the so-called “second opportunity of July” is understood as a second opportunity to retake the final written exam. The mark of this second exam will be considered together with the others obtained during the course, corresponding to the other activities. The percentages of the different contributions will be the same as those of the former "first opportunity".
-Mark Honors: priority is given in the first opportunity (January). Honors may only be granted in July if their number have not be exhausted in January final qualifications.
Part-time students (according to the rules of the UDC):
The same evaluation criteria listed above are applied.
Students with special academic permission (according to the rules of the UDC):
It is not mandatory to attend classroom lectures, to hand-in the supervised projects and to attend the objective test.
It is compulsory to attend computer practical sessions. It will be tried to fit the dates to the student's availability.
The final grade will be the sum of 10% of the mark obtained in the practical sessions and 90% of the mark obtained in the mixed test. The same criteria will be applied to both opportunities.
Students who has not attended the final exam will be assessed as "non attendance".
