Script: chapter_1, chapter_2


Time: Tuesdays 15:30 -17:00 in B244 (A 5) + ZOOM

The first tutorial will take place on Wednesday 8.9.2021 at 15:30 -17:00 in C 012 in A5, but mostly consider background material. Subsequent tutorials will be on Tuesday. You do not have to submit the first exercise sheet. Thereafter, please email your exercises by Monday 12:00, the day before the tutorial, so I (Ross) can mark them and give feedback. A minimum of 50% of the exercise points is necessary to be admitted to the exam.
