Leistungsnachweis

Organization

The course is divided by topics into six blocks, each consisting of three lectures and one blackboard exercise.
The final grade will be based on the blackboard exercises and on the final exam. There are six mandatory units of blackboard exercises.

First lecture takes place on October 2. After a brief presentation of the course organization, the first lecture will be given. 

 

Blackboard Exercises

They will take place on Thursday 18.10., 25.10., 8.11., 29.11., 6.12., and 20.12., each day in several groups at different times.
You will receive instructions a few weeks before these units and are expected to submit your solutions in advance and also to be able to present your solutions at the blackboard.
You have to register to one of the six groups in TISS and attendance to the exercise lessons of your particular group is compulsory.
Exercise sheets will be available for download.

The blackboard exercises take place in the library room HB 0408 of the Algorithms and Complexity group. It is located at Favoritenstrasse 7-11, Stairs I, 4th floor

 

 

Final Exam

The final written exam takes place on January 14, 2019 and as an additional opportunity on March 7, 2019.
At least one exam has to be taken, if both are done then only the best result counts, and only one certificate will be issued.

Grading

The mark you receive depends on this final exam (40%) and your performance at the blackboard exercises (60%).
Blackboard exercises will influence your grade via two different measures:

  • the total number of exercises you indicate to have accomplished and submitted before the deadlines (40%),
  • your presentations of exercises at the blackboard (20%);

The minimal requirements for a positive grade are:

  • >=37% of all blackboard examples marked and successfully submitted in TUWEL (both) before the deadlines as well as at least 3 exercises per exercise sheet from at least 5 of the 6 exercise blocks
  • >=50% on average on your blackboard presentations
  • >=50% on at least one of the two written exams

To obtain full points for the exercises it is sufficient to mark and submit >=75% of all blackboards examples.

Overall grade distribution:
S1: [88%,100%]
U2: [75%,88%)
B3: [63%,75%)
G4: [50%,63%)
N5: [0%,50%)

Note: Once you attended at or submitted your solutions for at least one blackboard exercise session you will in any case receive a grade at the end of the term.
