Course grading

The final grade for the course is determined based on attendance and the final report. Since the purpose of this lecture course is, in part, to practice English, attendance is important. Attendance counts for 50% of the total points.

Report deadline

The reports must be submitted by June 15 to room A313 of ISSP or sent my email to mlippmaa@issp.u-tokyo.ac.jp. Report subjects will be posted on the lecture notes page, which you can access after logging in.
