Modifications on the time schedule
- 19th February: Lecture at 10:45 (as usual) but the exercise class takes place in Y13 L11 for all students!
- 26th February: Note the new room and starting time of the teaching classes.
Assistance groups:
- The condition to obtain the testat is to hand in 75% of the exercises individually, i.e. it is not allowed to hand in solutions in groups.
- Please do not hesitate to contact us in case of questions and difficulties!
