Convex Geometry requirements

Code: BMETE94AM22;
Requirements: 2/2/0/V/4;
Semester: 2021/22/2;
Language: English;
Instructor: Dr. Zsolt Lángi (E0 course)

Attendance requirements. In offline education attendance is mandatory on at least 50% of lectures and 70% of tutorials.

Midterm tests:

·     1st midterm: Week 7, Friday, from practice problems (45 minutes, 20 points)

·     2nd midterm: Week 12, Friday, from practice problems (45 minutes, 20 points)

Requirement for signature  -- in addition to attendance requirements --, completion of both midterm tests with at least 6 point scores after replacement tests.

Replacement tests: both midterms can be replaced or improved. In case of replacement/improvement, the score of the replacement test overwrites the earlier result even if the score of the replacement test is less.

Replacement tests are held on Week 14.

Grade: based on an oral exam.

Consultation: by appointment.
