Metoder, arbetssätt och bedömningsgrunder (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

  • lectures
  • home and lecture exercises
  • student presentation
  • exam

Närmare information om bedömningsgrunderna och -metoderna och om hur den studerande kan ta del av bedömningen (gäller denna kursomgång): 


The final course grade will be based on the following four parts:

  • pre-lecture exercises (during the course, 8 lectures)
  • home exercises (during the course, three sets of calculation exercises + one small group work prepared during a lecture)
  • online calculation exercises (at the end of the course)
  • individual presentation / "mini-exam" (at the end of the course)

Please see more information on grading from the "Grading" section.

Points earned from the pre-lecture exercises are available immediately after submitting the answers and those earnerd from the home exercises will be published in MyCourses soon
after the deadline. Point limits for each grade will be announced in the
end of the course.


  • Written final exam: 100% of the grade will be based on the exam
