Grading: there will be three tests during the term. The first one will be worth 15 points, the second and third both 30 points. It is possible to collect up to 30 points from solving the home exercises, and up to 7.5 points from checking the solutions of other students. The grade limits will be computed as if the maximum number of points were equal to 100.

Homework submission and feedback: The homeworks must be submitted electronically, by e-mailing them to Margus Niitsoo (firstname dot lastname at ut dot ee). The deadline for submission is at the start of the working day of the Thursday two weeks after the associated lecture. The subject line of the submission e-mail should start with DM: and the number of the homework. It is permitted to do the homeworks in groups, in this case the other members of the group must be CC:'ed and their names must be listed in the body of the e-mail.
The feedback will be given through Moodle.

The tasks in the tests will be similar in nature to the tasks considered in practice sessions, hence it makes sense to visit at least the practice sessions regularly.

The lectures will cover a number of topics from graph theory and combinatorics. We plan to talk about


Slides of the lectures will appear below. As a rule, they will not contain proofs of “simple” statements.
