In total 7 exercise sheets are released on Thursday mornings, about every second week. An exercise sheet addresses the content of previous lectures. After the release date one week is available before the discussion takes place on Thursdays at 10.00.

Formally, no submission of exercises is required. But it is highly recommended to work on the exercise sheets and to answer respective in order to be prepared for the exam. Be aware that some questions may not allow for a definite answer to encourage a discussion during the exercises. During the exercises, all questions and tasks are addressed. Volunteers are asked to present their views and replies.
