Teaching methods
Students work on the projects on their own at home and consult relevant problems they encounter with the teacher.
Assessment methods
To be given the credit, the student has to submit a solution to every project defined during the term. The solution to a project must be of an appropriate quality which is judged by the teacher. Each project has a firm submission deadline. The project is announced at least two weeks prior the deadline, and the form of submission is specified as part of the project definition. Each student may at most once ask the teacher to check the quality of a project solution, however, this must be done no later than a week prior the deadline of the project. Should the teacher be unsatisfied with the quality of the solution at the date of deadline, or should the solution be submitted after the deadline, the student may submit the solution once again within the special deadline specified by the teacher during the first two weeks of the semester (typically 12th week of the semester). However, this option may be utilized at most twice by each student.
