Teaching methods
Theoretical lectures with examples - in average 1 hour per week (the attendance is optional) condensed into the first half of the semester (2 hours per week), practical computer labs - 2 hours per week (the attendance is optional), 5 home assignments, project, quick tests starting the computer labs.
Assessment methods
The assessment consits of three parts:
1. Quick tests in the computer labs (18 points)
2. Home assignments (36 points)
3. Final project (26 points)
At least 56 points are required for the colloquium, at least 48 points are required for the "credit". In both cases it is necessary to present the current state of the project in the last seminar and also at least 13 points from the project must be achieved.
