Discrete Mathematics DSBA2019/2020
The first topic of our course is ``What is a Proof?". It is the first week ``Making Convincing Arguments" on the Coursera course . It is recommended (but not obligated) to study the whole course.
The program of the colloquium is ready. The examples of problems would be updated.
Colloquium will be on December 12. The timetable would be available soon.

Intermediate grade 1
Cumulative grade-1 = 50% colloquium-1 + 50% homework
Intermediate grade (module 2) = 60% cumulative grade-1 + 40% intermediate exam (module 2)
Intermediate grade 2
Cumulative grade = (3/14) colloquium-1 + (3/14)colloquium-2 + (3/14) intermediate exam + (15/42) homework
Intermediate grade = 70% cumulative grade + 30% final exam
Grade “homework assignments” is an average grade of all the homework assignments in the course.
Intermediate grade 2 is the final grade for the course included in a diploma supplement.
Rounding of the cumulative grade, intermediate and final grades must be performed according to the following rules. Rounding down for marks between 1 and 5, rounding by the rules of arithmetic for marks between 5 and 6, and rounding up for all the other marks.
There is no possibility to get an extra point to compensate the low cumulative grade.
