Formale Systeme 511.002 (instructions), Winter semester 2020/2021
Schedule: Thursdays starting 15.10.20
1pm-3pm in T01 (Group 1, me),
3pm-5pm in T01 (Group 2, me),
1pm-3pm online (Group 3, Sebastian Arming)
3pm-5pm in T02 (Group 4, Elmar Eder)
First meeting: Thursday October 15, and the in the first lecture meeting (Oct 8)
Language: Teaching in German, course material (mainly) in English
Tutorials: tba
Rules: Presence in class is obligatory. Each student can miss one class, but not more than that without a serious reason.
Each week after the class (Thursday evening) the students are given a set of several homework exercises that are to be solved by the students until the next class. These exercises are to be discussed during class on the following Thursday.
In all groups that happen in a lecture room: Each week except the first one we will have a short (15min) test with a simple exercise covering the material from the week before. These tests will be graded and together form the final grade.
In the online group: Each week the students have to submit their Homework assignments (from the previous week) as a single pdf file in Blackboard. The Homework can be submitted personally or in groups of 2-3 students. All students from the group need to be signed on the submitted Homework. We will decide which of the tasks is to be corrected, and the students will get the points for that week based on the corrections.
During class we will present the solution of some exercises and the students will be asked to present the solutions/discuss the other exercises.
Grading: The grade of a student is determined by: (1) his/her grades in the tests, and (2) activity (ability to present solutions of exercises) in class. Hence, this is a course with permanent evaluation, there will be no final exam.
Plan B: In case of corona-related problems, students from Group 1,2, and 4, can participate in the online Group 3. In case nobody is allowed in the lecture rooms, we will switch all groups to online groups and the rules for Group 3 will then apply for all groups.

Corona adjustments:
We have one online group to make sure that all students with problems caused by the corona crisis have a way to participate in the instructions.
The link for the online group will be made available via PlusOnline and Blackboard, by the group leader.
Luckily, we seem to have enough space for the groups 1,2, and 4 to happen in person. In case of corona-related problems, students from Group 1,2, and 4, can (when necessary) participate in the online Group 3.
Course description: These are the instructions accompanying the lectures Formale Systeme 511.001. Each week the students are given a set of (approximately) ten exercises to solve which we then discuss in class.
