    You are allowed to bring one A4 sheet to the exam containing handwritten notes (no printouts or photocopies allowed). In case you do bring such a sheet, you must write your matriculation number and full name very clearly at the top right of the sheet.

    Note that if you use a photocopied or printed sheet, it will be considered a cheating attempt.

    You are allowed to bring a standard german-english or english-english dictionary. There must be no handwritten notes in the dictionary.

    Tutorials start cum tempore, i.e. 15 minutes late, unless noted otherwise.

    If a tutorial is cancelled (Fachschaftsvollversammlung, Studentische Vollversammlung, public holidays), please attend another tutorial in the same week.

  • Submission of Solutions to Exercises:

    Exercises are posted on this webpage on Mondays. Solutions should be submitted in English by 10:15 on Monday of the following week, in the mailbox "Efficient Algorithms" on the basement floor in the MI-building.

    Solutions must be submitted in groups of 2-3 persons. Individual submissions are not allowed.

    Submissions must be handwritten by one member of the group. On each submission, you should also write the Matrikel No., name of each student and also write the number of the tutorial session which each person in the group attends. Please also indicate which member wrote the solution. Please use this cover sheet [PDF]. Without this information, we can not grade submissions.

    Each student in a group gets the same marks for the corresponding assignment. The corrected solutions can be collected the following week in the corresponding tutorial.

    Solutions will be discussed in the tutorial of the week when the sheet has been handed in, i.e, the sheet may not be graded by this time.

    Do not write with a pencil or red/green ink!

  • Bonus

    It is possible to obtain a bonus on the exam if
    • 50 % of the points are achieved on submissions 2 - 8, and
    • 50 % of the points are achieved on submissions 9 - 14, and
    • Each group member has written at least 3 solutions.

    Please note that copying solutions from fellow students or other sources is considered cheating and immediately excludes from the bonus. Please respect the Student Code of Conduct. (see also ASPO § 22)

    The bonus does count for the repeat exam.
