There are two types of homework: Type 1 and type 2. Both are happening independently of one another. Both will be available through PANDA.
Type 1 homework
Type 1 homework deals with the content of one specific week and is designed for repetition and comprehension. It can be solved within a short timeframe, assuming you've already put some work towards understanding the content.
Type 1 exercises are released every week. Type 1 exercises are mandatory, i.e. you need to achieve a certain percentage of points in order to take the exam. Type 1 exercises must be solved by you individually, they are not group exercises.
Type 2 homework
Type 2 homework is designed to deepen your understanding by asking advanced questions (potentially spanning multiple topics). These are more time-intensive and may require you to come up with the right ideas. For this, you'll have more time.
Type 2 exercises are released irregularly and you will have 2-3 weeks to solve them. Type 2 exercises are not mandatory, but solving them grants a bonus for your final grade. Type 2 exercises can be solved in groups.
