Bonus system:

Your exercise sheets will be corrected and graded with points. Through continuous participation you can add a bonus point to your final grade: At the end of the course, if you obtain 50% (or more) of the total points allotted to all the exercises, your grade will go one level up (if you got a 1.7, this will turn to 1.3, if you got 2.0, it will turn to 1.7 and so on). Improving the grade 1.0 or a failed exam is not possible. This bonus counts only for the first exam on 04.02.2015.
