We plan to have the weekplan for the following week (week x+1) ready by Tuesday morning (week x).

CLRS: "Cormen, Leiserson, Rivest, and Stein: Introduction to Algorithms, Second Edition".

The weekplan describes the subject, text, and assignments of the week. An assignment can be marked with either an H, an S, or an O. An H indicates that the assignment can hopefully be solved by everyone at home, and we will not spend time on these assignment at the course. An O indicates that the assignment is mandatory, and an S indicates that the assigment is difficult. Mandatory assignments of week x must be handed in no later than Thursday 13.00 of the week x+1, e.g. mandatory assigment from week 2 in heaps and sorting must be handed in by Thursday 13.00 of week 3. There will be two exception from this princip, see weekplan 3 and 10. To some of the weeks there will be an alternartive mandatory assigment, which you can solve in stead of the exercises marked with O.

Lectures and tutorials take place between 9.15 and 17.00. The day is divided as decribed in the table below. From 9.15-12.00 teaching assistants work with last weeks assignments in tutorials. At the tutorials it is assumed, that all participants have studied the relevant chapters and tried to solve the assignments. To the first lecture we will might change the day schedule.
9.15-12.00 Tutorials
12.59-15.00 Lecture
15.00-17.00 Exercises
