Although there are no mandatory prerequisites for this exam, students are strongly recommended to take it after Discrete Structures and Linear Algebra.
It is also worth noticing that the topics covered by this course will be used in Algorithms and Data Structures, Digital Signal and Image Processing, Physics I and Probability and Statistics.
Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Written and oral exam.
The written exam is passed if the mark (which is valid for the exam calls of the same academic year) is at least 18/30. The oral exam, which must be taken if the written exam is passed, determines a spread between -12/30 and 12/30 of the previous mark, thus yielding the final mark. There are no limitations to the number of trials per session per year.
The course is offered both face-to-face and on-line within the Laurea Degree Program in Applied Computer Science.
