 (Arrangement of midterm and final exam) Midterm will be conducted online using "Blackboard" as a "takehome exam" with 24 hours limit. It will be available on April 16, 2020 at noon and deadline for submission (via "Blackboard") is April 17, 2020 at noon. It is expected that the paper can be finished within 2 hours. As such, the 24hour limit should allow enough flexibility. More details will be announced later. Another "takehome exam" will be conducted at the end of the term in a similar way as the final assessment. The details, including the time, will be announced later. The weight of the the midterm and final takehome assessment will be 36% and 52% respectively. For students doing very well in these take home assessments, a further oral exam may be arranged to test their indepth understanding of the subject.
