Coursework

The coursework is a take-home test. Starting from week 5 you will find the questions in the following PDF document.

2019 Coursework paper

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 handed in at the Reception of the Teaching and Learning Office before 13:00 on Friday 22 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.
