1.1 Some course logistics

  • Lessons.
    • International Studies, group 55. Mondays 16:15-17:45 at INF-15.S.06.
    • International Studies, group 56. Tuesdays 18:00-19:30 at INF-10.0.29.
    • International Studies & Political Science, group 45. Mondays 18:00-19:30 at INF-15.S.04.
  • Office hours. Tuesdays 11:00-13:00 at office 10.0.10 (access through 10.0.7 in Campomanes building). If they are incompatible with your schedule, send me an email to get an alternative appointment (preferable) or just drop by my office to see if I am available (I will remove this option if I get overwhelmed with queries).
  • Grading.
    • Continuous evaluation is 60% of the final grade. Scored by 2 partial exams and 1 group project, each accounting for a 20%.
    • Final exam is 40%, covers contents mostly from the theoretical lectures.
  • Partials. Cover contents from labs and lectures. The first will (likely) cover Topics 1-2. The second, Topics 3-5.
  • Group project. The students must team up in groups of 4 (\(\pm1\)) in order to produce a report. This report must apply the methodology presented to a dataset of their choice. As a rule of thumb, all students in a group will be graded evenly and according to the ratio “quality project”/“group size”. Specific details in Appendix E.
