Assessment methods:
Participation in the seminar is compulsory, attendance is considered to be fulfilled if the student visits at least 9 seminars. Active participation is required in the seminary (the student has an overview of the lectured topics and can calculate the basic exercises demonstrated at the lectures).

During the semester, it is necessary to pass a continuous test, i.e. to get at least 4 points out of the total possible 8 points. The student card, writing aids, and A4 blank papers must be provided for the test. All nonempty papers are handed in, otherwise the student will be assessed by a grade F.

If students complete attendance (only in the case of a full-time form) and pass the test, they are eligible to apply for the exam. Otherwise, the final score will be "not present".

The exam is in the form of a written work and is considered successful if the gain is at least 25 points out of a total of 50 points. If students are not successful in writing, they are rated F. If students successfully pass a written work, the subject assessment is given by the sum of the points obtained from the test and the written exam:
[49; 58] points - A
[44; 49) points - B
[39; 44) points - C
[34; 39) points - D
[29; 34) points - E

Students will bring writing accessories, calculator and the student card for written work. Students can not use their own papers.

Any copying, recording or excerpt of tests and written works, the use of illicit devices as well as means of communication or other impairment of objectivity in the verification of knowledge will be considered gross violation of the study regulations. As a result, the course is closed in the UIS by F; F; F. Further, teacher can initiate disciplinary proceedings, which may result in termination of studies.

The course is not possible to enroll in a foreign trip.
