### Remarks

- All the courses in this category have the same syllabus, i.e. the lecture material is the same.

##### Grading:

**Exam**- 90%**Home Work**- Each hw submission will add 1 point of the final grade, up to 10 maximum points

So the final grade is calculated by:

Final Grade = 0.9 * exam_grade + min(submitted_hw, 10)### Additional information
