Teaching methods
Theoretical lectures with examples - 2 hours per week (the attendance is optional), class exercises - 2 hours per week (class exercises take place in a computer classroom and the attendance is mandatory, the students also must submit all required homeworks and successfully pass intrasemestral test). Each student has to realize an individual project, i.e. has to code a required program application.
Assessment methods
Assesment consists of 3 parts: intrasemestral test with computer usage (10 points), individual project (10 points), and final exam with computer usage (20 points). It is required to obtain at least 23 points to pass the exam successfully. If the course PB069 is completed with a "credit", it is necessary to obtain at least 5 points from intrasemestral test and at least 5 points from individual project.
