Topic outline

  • Remember: weekly assignment (WA) deadlines are on Sundays and group work assignment (GW) deadlines are on Thursdays. Deadlines are always at 23:55 (11:55PM) in the evening.

    Time needed to solve the assignments

    The weekly assignments typically take more than the 4 hours to solve. Therefore you should not think you can solve the assignment during the exercise session times, especially if you have problems with the assignment and need assistance.

    The amount of time required to solve an exercise can vary considerably. Average student might need:

    WA-1  3-5h
    WA-2 5-8h
    WA-3 6-8h
    WA-4 4-6h
    WA-5 4-6h

    However, the amount of time used for an exercise might be more than twice the minimum time reported in here. Plan accordingly.
