Regular participation in the exercises and preparation of the work sheets is strongly recommended for the successful exam. Each participant should work on the exercises independently.

Structure of the final grade:

Students are offered to participate in the Analytics Cup. This is a course intern graded project where students get to analyze a realistic data set. If the grade in this project is better than the exam grade, it will be weighted by 33% and the exam by 67%. Therefore, participating students can only improve their grades. For example:

Exam grade (2.0), Analytics Cup grade (2.7) -> Final grade: 2.0

Exam grade (2.0), Analytics Cup grade (1.0) -> Final grade: 0.67*2.0+0.33*1.0=1.67 -> 1.6

The Analytics Cup grade is taken into account up to the subsequent exam and expires in WS19/20. The bonus will be forfeited after one of the exams is failed. Final grade can not be higher than 1.0.
