To get a certificate for the tutorial you need to obtain an average grade of
60% on the homework assignments in both halves of the semester.
Homework assignments are due weekly. They may be turned in at the beginning of the tutorial (Thursday, 10:15) or left in the letter box of Mats Vermeeren
(MA 701, Frau J. Downes) before that time.
