Requirements and grading:
There are sevaral ways to get a grade and complete the course.
Oral exam: 
Those, who have missed more than 2 lectures can obtain a grade by oral exam. Everyone gets two subjects on the exam.  
Problem solving:
You can obtain a grade through problem solving in case you missed less than 3 times.
  • We hand out 5 sets.
  • You can select problems from each set to collect 20 points at maximum (i.e. max. 100 points).
  • To pass (grade 2) you need to reach 50%-ot, for grade 3 you need  60%, for grade 4 you need to reach  70%-ot, and for grade 4, you must score above  80%.
  • You may discuss with the others or with the lecturers, give hints to each-other, but we request independent work. You may help each-other but you are not allowed to copy 
  • Deadlines will be specified in the problem sets.  
Term paper: 
Instead of problem solving you can pass by handing in a 15 page long term paper, too. The term paper is supposed to start with a 8-10 pages introduction, putting your subject into context and revising the relevant material of the course, and the last 8-10  pages are supposed to discuss a hand-out (publication or book chapter). You do not need to understand all details of the handout, but the text must be clear and logical, reflecting your clear understanding.
