## Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

### Grading scale^{}

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

### Examination^{}

- LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 2,0 hp, betygsskala: P, F
- TEN1 - Examination, 4,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
- TEN2 - Examination, 4,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Passed exams:

TEN1, (4 Cr, Linear algebra, written exam), grading: A/B/C/D/E/Fx/F

TEN2, ( 4 Cr, Calculus, written exam), grading: A/B/C/D/E/Fx/F

Passed lab work

LAB1, (2 Cr.), grading: P/F

One of the following mathematical software packages will be used: Matlab, Mathematica or Maple.

### Ethical approach^{}

- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
