Thursdays 8–10, Room F122 first lecture on 19. April 2018

Exercise groups
Fridays 8-10, Room F122 first exercise meeting on 20. April 2018



By continuous and active participation in the weekly exercises, students may obtain a 0.3 bonus on the final grade, when passing the exam. To qualify for this bonus, the student must successfully solve 60% of the assigned homework problems which will be determined by grading the submitted homework solutions.


Homework problems might require coding in Python or C++. Make sure you are familiar with Python. If you have a lot of programming experience but in a different language, you will probably be fine.
