SolveITSolveIT project plan 2008Overall goal: more efficient exercise concepts for large courses with heterogeneous student groups, on different levels. Results shall be generalizable (added value for IMPACT, more than what is done in normal course development). Cryptography has had around 130 students from several programs, with a substantial number of international students. Student backgrounds are highly variable as regards prerequisite knowledge in mathematics (modular arithmetic, basic number theory and elementary probability theory) and programming (basic programming experience expected). Algorithms: similar situation. Prerequisites are expected in: data structures, discrete mathematics, proofs (by contradiction, induction), some elementary analysis, programming. The mathematical maturity is often insufficient. Also, it is a common attitude that students wait for instructions before becoming active. Exercise training must be more formalized to be more effective. How can it be improved without demanding more resources? Project tracks (total: about 45%)Peter Damaschke 10%

There is a risk that we during the project will find out that a LMS does not give the appropriate contribution to the aim of this project. SvenArne Andreasson 10%
