- Actively demonstrate high concern for quality when defending or presenting the conclusions of one's work.
- Apply critical spirit and thoroughness to validate or reject both one's own arguments and those of others.
- Assimilate the definition of new mathematical objects, relate them with other contents and deduce their properties.
- Students must be capable of applying their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional way and they should have building arguments and problem resolution skills within their area of study.
- Students must develop the necessary learning skills to undertake further training with a high degree of autonomy.
- Students must have and understand knowledge of an area of study built on the basis of general secondary education, and while it relies on some advanced textbooks it also includes some aspects coming from the forefront of its field of study.
- Understand and use mathematical language.

This subject consists of 2 weekly hours of theory class, one of problems and three seminars of two hours each.

In the theory classes, the various types of equations in partial derivatives, their derivation, the characteristic properties of each type of equation, the methods of resolution and the various concepts of solution will be exposed.

The problem classes will be dedicated to solving practical problems that will be developed on the board. For this, work will be done on lists of problems that will be provided to the student in advance throughout the semester and that will also be uploaded to the website.

There will also be three seminars of two hours each, where specific topics will be deepened and a problem will be solved in a guided way.

**Annotation**: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

In principle, the subject will be assessed through two partial exams, which will count for 40% each, and the evaluation of the seminars, which will count for 20%. However, it will be necessary to meet the condition that the grades obtained in the partial exams are both higher than or equal to 3. If this condition is not met, or the grade obtained is lower than 5, then it will be possible to opt for a recovery exam that will replace the two partial exams and will count for 80%. The evaluation of the seminars is not recoverable.

Possible honor degrees will be awarded based on the overall marks resulting from the two partial exams and the seminars, that is, without waiting for the recovery exam. If this does not exhaust the number of possible honor degrees, then the remaining ones may be awarded after the recovery examination.

In the event that the single assessment is chosen, this will be carried out on the day of the second partial exam but will have a value of 100%. The exam will contain an exercise related to the seminars. The student will have the right to a new exam if he/she has not passed the previous one, on the day of the recovery exam, under the same conditions.
