(1) presence during the course is compulsory and will be awarded by up to 5 points;
(2) presentation of an exercise (from the lecture notes, to be prepared in advance) is optional/voluntary and will be awarded by up to 15 points;
(3) there are two compulsory written tests:
mid-term, on Tuesday 3 December 2019, and
end term, on Tuesday 14 January 2020
Each test can be awarded by up to 50 points.
Mode: open-book test. Electronic calculators admitted, no cell phones (flight or offline mode). Net working time: 80 minutes, which will be tight, so I suggest to prepare well (from experience, you will lack time to look up too many things in books during exam).
(4) To pass the exam/course successfully, you need 53 points.
