Resit examination
For the written exam there will be a reexamination, but not for the folder.
In case of reexamination, the folder need not be redone if former approved.
If the folder is retaken, the exam need not be redone if former approved.
Examination support
Aid code C (according to NTNU rules https://innsida.ntnu.no/wiki//wiki/Norsk/tillatte+hjelpemidler )
Coursework Requirements
One submission using mathematical software (Maple), must be approved to make the folder valid..
Teaching Materials
