Grading is based on a number of take-home exercises during the course (making up half of the grade), a test in the middle of the course (making up a quarter of the grade) and an examination paper sometime after the lectures have ended (making up a quarter of the grade). There will be an option to repeat both the test and the final exam during the regular exam session.

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, and a little bit on Arto Salomaa's textbook.


Bingsheng Zhang is maintaining a page for the practice sessions.
