One exam and two re-exams announced later on itslearning.
The course material is totally in English. Data Structures and Algorithms are very crucial to know in order to make successful programs. Besides some of the students are international ones.
Material consists of PowerPoint slides, Word and PDF files. In addition, there are links to different web materials, e.g. lectures and presentations in YouTube and in some other places in Internet.
The course consists of rounds of topics (learning material & quiz - homework - teacher review). There will be a specified time slot of each round.
Some rounds have quizzes. Each quiz will consist of 4-6 quick questions, where the student needs to choose an answer out of 4 available ones, or answer yes or no.
After every section there will be a homework assignment to solve some algorithmic problems related to the current subject.
The Flipped Classroom technique is applied to this course.
MatLab is used in graphs (drawing and algorithms).
Lectures (including the exam) and classroom working 7 x 6h + 18h = 60h
Homework 60h
Preparing exam 15h
Total 135h
