Please try to watch the podcasts early in the week (say up until Wednesday). They are meant to complement the notes. Have a go at the inclassproblems. They are posted on this website and additionally on the
discussion board. Make use of the discussion board: discuss the problems, suggest solutions, discuss your attempts and difficulties. On Friday during the online tutorial I will assume that you have read the questions and attempted the problems.

Assessment and Feedback
Feedback
You will receive feedback on your understanding in this course
 from the coursework
 during the tutorial
 from the online quizzes
 during my office hour, and
 via the generic feedback (and exam script viewing) on the final exam.
Coursework
The coursework is a takehome test. Starting from week 5 you will find the questions in the following PDF document.
You are encouraged to have a look at Manfred Lehn's valuable advice on
how to work on problem assignments.
The solutions have to be submitted via Blackboard/TurnitIn before 13:00 on Friday 27 March.
The weighting of the coursework will be 20% of the final mark.
Examination
The format of the exam paper will be the same as in the last year, but different from previous years. There will be one section with six mandatory questions.
Solving the homework exercises is meant as an effective preparation for the exam. You might also have a look at the past papers below.
