Even if the homework problems are noncompulsory, they are strongly recommended as the bonus points are often the difference between pass and fail on the final exam. Course requirements: One written exam (TEN1; 4 credits). The exam is a mixture of theory and problem solving assignments. The exam consists of six problems, each of which can give three (3) points, i.e., the maximum attainable score is 18 points, the bonus points from the homework problems are then added to this score.
