There are review questions at the end of each chapter, whose answers can be found in the text of that chapter. Exercises are intended to obtain practical hands-on experiences and sometimes challenge the student. A selection of the exercises’ answers is included in the appendix. Assignments require the student to integrate the material and, especially for the mini project, delve deeper into a specific subtopic.
There can be several assessment modes for a final mark of a course. I have used mainly the following format, but one can choose differently:
– A test (exam) at the end of the course [50%]
– A practical assignment due some time half-way the course duration [15%]
– Mini-project due at the end of the course [30%]
Students had to submit something for each component in order to have a chance to pass the course.
