Out of the 240 possible points, 130 points are required for obtaining the course attestation. The 240 points split up into 110 (= 11x10) points + 20 bonus points in homeworks and 110 points in the mini project.


The homeworks have to be handed in electronically until the submission deadline. They can be handed in by groups of two students.

In addition to the weekly exercises, there is a small programming project. Task of the mini project is to write the artifical intelligence for a player of a small game. The framework of the project will contain the game itself as well as a (stupid) sample bot. The students are required to extend the intelligence of this bot to get game scores as high as possible. The mini project is used to apply knowledge gained in the lectures and will be launched during the lecture on March 15, 2012. The project has to be completed until May 21, and adds up to 110 points to the attestation. Completing tutorial one will add 50 points, the second tutorial is worth 40 and the last one 20.

In addition to the mandatory part of the mini project there will be a contest. The best projects will be awarded in the lecture on May 31, 2012.


Always make sure that you download the correct version of a software package, depending on whether you work with VirtualBox or on a student machine!
