- This course has no exam
Lectures and partially guided lab works. Each laboratory assignment is evaluated automatically by the MathWorks Grader giving feedback to students to improve their solutions. The final grade for the course is calculated by the teacher from the completed assignments at the end of course. The number of successfully completed assignments affects the course grade. An indicated number of subtasks must be completed in each week to pass the course. No final exam arranged.
