Exercises
Each week the students have to work through their assignments. It is not necessary to hand in the solutions. However, we strongly encourage to solve the problems for yourself. The week after the assignments the solutions are discussed in the exercises.

Reviews
There will be two reviews to check whether you worked through the exercise assignments. Students have to pass those reviews in order to have their "aktive Teilnahme" confirmed!
