Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
- 2 pen-and-paper exercise sheets. They serve as a preparation for the tests. For each exercise sheet you will be able to get a maximum of 5% of the required points.
- 2 exams, one mid-term where you can obtain up to 20% of the total points and one final with questions on the entire course where you can obtain up to 30%.
Furthermore you can complete:
- 1 exercise sheet to assess your current mathematical (prerequisite) knowledge.
- 3 anonymized feedbacks (for a maximum of 3 feedbacks i.e. 1% for each feedback) These feedbacks can either be returned to the Tutor responsible for the lecture in an anonymized manner.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
- Programmierung 2 (PR2)
- Mathematische Grundlagen der Informatik 2 (MG2)
- Theoretische Informatik (THI)
- Modellierung (MOD)
- Algorithmen und Datenstrukturen (ADS)Grading will be done according to the following scheme:
1 – at least 87.5%
2 – at least 75.0%
3 - at least 60.0%
4 – at least 40.0%Please keep in mind that in order to pass the course, you will need at least 30% of the total score in all labs and homeworks combined with 40% of the total score of the tests.In order to successfully pass the course, regular attendance is strongly recommended, however not mandatory.
