Our exercise sessions are on Friday 12h–14h (group 1) and Wednesday 14h–16h (group 2) in lecture hall 1 (F175a). Unless told otherwise, each "round" starts on Friday, and the contents of a Friday exercise and the following Wednesday exercise are roughly the same (depending on you). You can choose your group freely, and you can even participate in both groups. There are five exercise rounds; some contain two sessions, some may contain only one, and one will also have lab work that is done partially outside the exercise hours.
The basic idea of exercise sessions is that students have prepared themselves beforehand and solve problems together in small teams. The teacher helps, but does not give a recipe for solving the problems or tell the correct result. If there are questions of general interest, the teacher may demonstrate something for the whole group. Different teaching teams may organize things differently, so please follow MyCourses news and discussion.
Each student will write his individual answers to the questions. The answers must be accompanied with relevant individual figures and computer scripts. The answers (actually we can call it a report) are returned after the whole exercise round in one .doc(x) / .rtf file. Those, who use latex for typesetting, may use .pdf. If you use Matlab report generator, save the report in .html, then open in Word/OpenOffice and save as .doc(x) / .rtf.
In addition to the actual exercise, each student shall write and return one learning journal per exercise round. The journal is a free-form text, in which the student will look back at his work & learning during this exercise round (incl. lectures, reading, discussions, googling) and search for links between differents exercises & lectures and between this course, other courses and other experience. The student shall also discuss the feedback he got from previous exercise and diary. The student can also give some feedback (suggestions for course development). The diaries will be read and commented by course staff. A good length for the diary is 1 to 2 pages (written on a computer). Please return the diary electronically in either .doc(x) or .rtf format.
Please collaborate, but remember that everyone makes his own reasonings, writes his own code, gets his own results, writes his own diary etc.
