Study Groups

We will use Exercises 4.3 and 4.4 as a test run for the project. Like in the project, you will first come up with a model, then get feedback on it, and finally implement it. Here, the interaction between study group and exercise sessions is important.

1) Before the exercise session, prepare Exercise 4.3.

2) After the exercise session, do Exercise 4.4.


1) Do Exercises 4.1 - 4.2.

2) Present and compare models for Exercise 4.3.
