The AMI exam review will take place on Friday, April 26 from 2pm till 4pm in room 203 ID

The next AMI exam will be held September 5th.

Exercise Sheets

An exercise sheet will be published each week on this webpage.

Students should solve the problems and write down solutions independently and also should discuss the solutions in groups.

Only handwritten solutions will be accepted. Please do not use a pencil! The solutions will be corrected and graded by the tutor (Altay Kaçan).

If you successfully work on the homework and pass the midterm test, a testat will be given to you at the end of the semester. Please note the criteria for the testat in the section below!

The Testat

You can obtain the testat by getting enough points for your homework solutions. The testat is necessary for you to be admitted to the exam. For the testat, you have to satisfy the following criteria:

  • Obtain at least 125 points on worksheets 1 to 10. This is 25% of all the total points obtainable (each worksheet is worth 50 points).
  • For at least 8 of those worksheets have at least 5 points from each.
  • Pass the midterm test.
  • You need to register for the testat (prerequisites).


There is a student tutorial given by Altay Kaçan and YueYang Cai. In the tutorial you will practice solving exercises in an interactive manner. You can also ask your questions connected to lectures or problem classes.

Supplementary Problems

These are some extra problems for practice which the TA Casey Tompkins is happy to discuss. They are not mandatory and not to be submitted!


  • There will be a written exam.
  • The exam will be closed book, the only material allowed is one handwritten page of notes.
  • You are only allowed to take the exam if you obtained the testat (see above)!


There will be lecture notes for this class, distributed by the ID.
