**Assessment:**

Your mark for this module will be based on your total continuous
assessment mark (20%) and your exam mark (80%). The continuous
assessment consists of problem sets issued (roughly) every
week. They will be made available on this webpage but should
be submitted as single legible PDFs to the
module's Moodle
page.
