The course requires constant work and attendance. We have tried to balance the workload throughout the course: there is required reading for each lecture (except the first), but the two Assignments can be completed at any time.
You earn points in the following fashion (total 100 points):
- 7 best out of 9 short quizzes at lectures for each required reading: 35 points
- Assignment 1: Mathematical exercises about lectures 1-4: 10 points
- Assignment 2: 1500-word essay about one topic: 15 points
- Final exam: 40 points
The grade is determined by your point total:
