Grading is based on a number of take-home exercises during the course (making up two thirds of the grade) and an examination paper sometime after the lectures have ended (making up one third of the grade).
The contents of the lectures is similar to the previous years. Notes (in Estonian) covering parts of the lectures can be found here. The coverage of the material in the lectures is mostly based on Doug Stinson's textbook.
