Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

L1, L2, L3, L4 – evaluation of the reports (four reports)
Z – evaluation of the final test
The evaluation of each report and of the final test can`t be lower than 3,0
FG – final grade
FG = 0.15L1 + 0.15L2 + 0.15L3 + 0.15L4 +0.4Z
The obtain result and final grade:
3.0 < FG <3.25 – 3.0
3.26 < FG < 3.75 – 3.5
3.76 < FG < 4.25 – 4.0
4.26 < FG < 4.75 – 4.5
4.76 < FG – 5.0
If the student failed the first attempt to pass the test (or report), it is the possibility to pass the test (report) at second or third term. The grade is the arithmetic mean of all ratings e.g.
(2.0 +3.0): 2 = 2.5 the grade is 3.0 ( value of Z or Ln, where n = 1, 2, 3, 4)
(2.0 + 2.0 + 5.0): 3 = 3.0 the grade is 3.0 (value of Z or Ln, where n = 1, 2, 3, 4)

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

The basic knowledge of mathematics and the abbility of work with Office. The basic knowledge of the structure of solids.
