Course requirements

The learning goals of the course can be found in the course plan.

Project

Submission of the project report: 14/3 - 2019

Project presentation: 22/3 - 2019, 9.00 - 12.00, MVF32

The project report (length of the main part around 10-15 pages, else contact the examiner) is written in latex. It is submitted as one pdf file no later than the deadline by sending an email to annika.lang@chalmers.se and annika.lang.chalmers@analys.urkund.se. The reports are then distributed to all participants of the course which read the reports before the presentation. All students are required to participate in all presentations of the projects and take part in an active discussion after the presentation. Presentation and discussion should not exceed 20 minutes in total (e.g., 15 + 5) and are not limited to the content of the project but to all lecture content.

Examination

The examination 2019 consists of a written project report and a presentation of the report with discussion. For details on the project, see "Project" above.

Examination procedures

In Chalmers Student Portal you can read about when exams are given and what rules apply on exams at Chalmers. In addition to that, there is a schedule when exams are given for courses at University of Gothenburg.

Before the exam, it is important that you sign up for the examination. If you study at Chalmers, you will do this by the Chalmers Student Portal, and if you study at University of Gothenburg, you sign up via GU's Student Portal, where you also can read about what rules apply to examination at University of Gothenburg.

At the exam, you should be able to show valid identification.

After the exam has been graded, you can see your results in Ladok by logging on to your Student portal.

At the annual (regular) examination:
When it is practical, a separate review is arranged. The date of the review will be announced here on the course homepage. Anyone who can not participate in the review may thereafter retrieve and review their exam at the Mathematical Sciences Student office. Check that you have the right grades and score. Any complaints about the marking must be submitted in writing at the office, where there is a form to fill out.

At re-examination:
Exams are reviewed and retrieved at the Mathematical Sciences Student office. Check that you have the right grades and score. Any complaints about the marking must be submitted in writing at the office, where there is a form to fill out.

Old exams

This is the first time the course is given, therefore no old exams exist.
