Criteria for evaluation Before each meeting students are asked to register which exercises they have solved. In total, the exercises will allow students to collect 30 points. Students with a very good presentation will get an additional point; students with a poor presentation will lose one point.
Methods The integral parts of the IC are five take-home problem sets consisting of practical exercises. Students will be assigned to present the solutions of the exercises in the computer labor. This is followed by a general discussion of the motivations, intuitions, and analytics of each exercise. Each problem set consists of about five exercises. To solve the exercises, students are free to use any calculator, computer, or software package. However, Stata is highly recommended.
