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). A good performance in practice sessions may substitute for this week's home exercises.

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.


Margus Niitsoo is maintaining a page for the practice sessions. The home exercises can be found from there, too.
