It is not mandatory to hand-in solutions and your solutions do not contribute in any way to your final grade. However, it is an opportunity to get some feedback on your understanding of the material covered in class.
Please, upload your solution via the SAM upload tool.
In order to access the website you will need a NETHZ-account and you will have to be connected to the ETH-network. From outside the ETH network you can connect to the ETH network via VPN. Here are instructions on how to do that.
Make sure that your solution is one PDF file and that its file name is formatted in the following way:
solution_<number of exercise sheet>_<your last name>_<your first name>.pdf
For example: If your first name is Alice, your last name is Miller, and you want to hand-in your solution to exercise sheet number 2, then you will have to upload your solution as one PDF file with the file name
The course will start on Wednesday, 24th of February 2021.
