Last update: Fialová Jana (12.12.2017)

Students will be able to:

assess the quality of the water in terms of its impact for the environment;

assess the quality of the water in terms of its aggressive action on various materials;

assess water quality in terms of hygiene;

explain the behavior of water on the basis of solutions of chemical and biochemical processes in different types of water.

V rámci průběžné kontroly studia je v první polovině semestru zařazen jeden průběžný test, který prověřuje aktivitu studentů a pochopení učiva. Na konci semestru jsou znalosti a dovednosti studentů prověřovány formou závěrečného testu a ústní zkoušky. Podmínkou účasti na ústní zkoušce je získání zápočtu.

Student získává nárok na zápočet , dosáhne-li celkem alespoň 50 bodů ze 100 (z toho v průběžném testu je možno dosáhnout maximálně 25 bodů, v závěrečném testu 75 bodů; získané body v obou testech se sčítají). Výsledná známka z předmětu je známkou souhrnnou za písemnou a ústní část zkoušky, tzn. hodnotí znalosti prokázané při ústní zkoušce a navíc zohledňuje i počet bodů získaných v obou testech.
