Methodologies Description
Introductory activities
In the initial session teachers will be presented and the course will be described. The most important in relation to the content, planning, methodologies, assessment methods and literature aspects are discussed.
Guest lecture / keynote speech
30 theoretical sessions are scheduled in one group, in which the teacher will develop the fundamental contents of the program through theoretical explanations, type resolution problems and practical examples. The scripts of the content and / or develop presentations will be available on the website of the matter (moodle) prior to the development of lessons. With the help of these materials and other resources (bibliographic, internet ...) students will prepare lessons prior to your delivery way. Student participation will be encouraged through the development of questions or e-mails directed to the teacher before, during or after the lesson.
Mixed objective/subjective test One final written examination is programmed final, which will objectively assess the degree of assimilation and the applicability of the contents of the subject by the student program. The objective test will include a single type of questions, which will be related to the structure, reactivity and synthesis of organic compounds, and that will determine whether the answers are correct.
Seminar It will be conducted in 12 interactive small group sessions in which students will actively participate in the analysis and resolution of the problems posed by the teacher. Questionnaires solving exercises will be available on the website of the matter (moodle) prior to the development of the classes. Students will work on the analysis and resolution of problems prior to the delivery of seminar sessions.

Personalized attention

The students will have personalized attention in the schedule of tutorials for clarification of the key concepts of the subject exposed in large groups, the resolution of individual issues raised in the workshops and keynote sessions.
In addition, students can receive personalized information on any aspect of the matter during the hours of tutorials.

Assessment comments
<p>The assessment by the objective test (first or second chance) will contribute 70% of the final grade. In this regard,the score on the second occasion (July) replace the obtained at the first opportunity (February). Continuous evaluation (the work done in the master classes, seminars and oral presentations and by assessing writing solutions to problem sets) will contribute 30% of the final grade. The score on continuous assessment during the course may be stored on the second occasion (July).</p><p>To qualify PASS will be necessary (1) to reach 40% of the score of the objective tests and (2) to 50% of the overall score. Students who do not participate in activities that account for more than 25% of the final score will be graded as&nbsp;NOTFILED. Students who takemore than 25% of classroom activities and after presenting the evidence does not reach 40% of the points in the same or 50% of the overall score will receive the grade of FAIL. </p><p>According to the academic regulations, students are evaluated on the second occasion shall be eligible for Honorous Distinction if the maximum number of these was not completed in its entirety at the first opportunity. </p><p>According to the recommendation of the Commission on Quality of the Faculty of Science, the Honours students who achieve the highest marks in the first opportunities will be granted. The students tested on the second occasion shall be eligible for honors if the maximum number of licenses for the corresponding course has not been fully covered at the first opportunity.</p><p>Students with recognition of dedication and part-time&nbsp; and academic exemption of assistance, the professor may fully or partly exempt to attending the continuous evaluation
process. Students in this circumstance must pass a specific test that
leaves no doubt about achieving the powers of matter on two occasions.</p>
