Evaluation and course grades are based on group and individual assignments, and final exam. They are weighted as follows: assignments 60%, exam 40%. Active participation in course activities is essential for passing the course.
The exam will be held on Thursday 9.4.2020 at 9 - 12 online in MyCourses.
There will be four questions as usual, broadly covering many of the course topics -particularly those relevant for further studies. The format of the exam is “normal”, meaning that it is similar to previous exams.
The exam will be done as a MyCourses assignment on the MyCourses section page named Exam9.4.2020 (link here). The assignment will open automatically on Thursday 9.4.2020 at 9.00 and will close three hours later at 12.15. The idea is that you will have three (3) hours for completing the problems and after that 15 minutes for submitting your answers. Take photos or scan your exam answer sheets, and SUBMIT THE PICTURES or THE SCANNED FILES to MyCourses. Make sure your pictures/files are clear and readable, and use normal file formats such as JPG or PDF. The deadline is absolute, the submission will close automatically at 12.15 so make sure you have enough time for the submission process.
As this is a home exam, justifying your answers is more critical than ever –as you will also later see from the instructions and reminders in the exam paper. Because you are allowed to use all course materials in the exam, we will need to see that you have understood the problems and can therefore explain how you have solved them and reached your final conclusions. Simply stating the answer will not show that you know what you have been doing, so JUSTIFY, JUSTIFY, JUSTIFY.
In the following there is a list of DOs and DON’Ts for this home exam.
-use the given course materials: My Courses materials, your notes, links and books we have indicated, practice session exercises etc.
-answer the problems on your own without any help from outside.
-rampage around the internet googling for ready-made answers.
-discuss with or copy from others.
-directly copy any of the materials you use: this is plagiarism and will NOT be accepted.
-be dishonest in any other way that we do not distinctly forbid. You know what this means even without saying.
Because of the extraordinary circumstances, any copying and/or plagiarism found in the answers (either from course materials, web, books, or, heaven forbid, from friends) will automatically result in failing the entire exam.
