### 4.1. Methodological overview

The learning process that is designed for this subject is based on the following:

LECTURES, as a basic instrument for introducing the contents and logical foundations of the subject. In the same, examples of application of the theory are also solved by requesting the intervention of the students, who bring their prior knowledge.

CLASS OF PROBLEMS, where the theoretical knowledge is applied to solving specific problems and proceed to the resolution of individual controls. Problem solving is done individual or in group working together. One person in the group can be nominated for exhibition in front of the other students involved in correcting it. The teacher acts clarifying concepts, and providing if required, additional keys. This process allows early detection of learning problems in students.

COMPUTER PRACTICES with statistical software, focusing on their correct use for management and basic statistical analysis of the data, and the correct interpretation of the outputs of the program to the technical different bivariate statistics.

GROUP WORK presented in due time.

TUTORIALS individual and group, to assess the progress of the group and the individual work, allowing the prescription of corrective measures.

TUTORIALS EMAIL for students with problems to keep face tutorials.

MOODLE 2 complement to all the previous teaching activities. It will be the way to provide classroom material and notices to the students.

The program that the student is offered to help you achieve the expected results includes the following activities ...

MASTERCLASSES
RESOLUTION PROBLEMS AND CASES
LAB PRACTICES
In computer classroom with the support of SPSS and / or Excel
INDEPENDENT WORK
Group work:
• In groups of 4, students collect some real data, create a database, and summarize the information collected through tables and graphs in addition to proceed to univariate and bivariate statistical analysis of the variables involved using computer software, presenting report written.
• In group, students solve a set of problems reporting the results in writing.

ASSESSMENT TESTS
Individual tests objective multiple choice and short question
