Homework system

Exercise classes

There are 5 exercise classes that take place almost every week. The registration into the exercise classes has to be done via TUMonline. In each of the classes a given maximum number of people can be registered. If the number of registrations into one of the groups reaches the limit, we will try to offer an additional class. If so, we will inform you under News as soon as possible. As long as the registration is open and there are remaining places, you can subscribe and unsubscribe into the groups as you want. Multiple subscriptions are not allowed.

Homework Group

On Thursday you have the possibility to work on your homework at a fixed time slot in the room MW 1550. It is a huge room and very good to work in groups. Furthermore there will be a tutor that can help you a little bit if you run into unsolveable problems or you just need some help to understand some contents of the lecture. You do not have to register for this group and the attendance is optional. The homework group is on Thursday, 10:15 am to 12:30 am but you can come when you want within this time slot.
