* 10.06.23: Solutions for the exam can be found here. Please let me know if you find any errors/mistakes by sending an email to mads.sandoy at ntnu.no.

* 07.06.23: This is some information related to the exam based on some (frequently asked) questions I have received by email the last couple of days. Note that the exam will be in "bokmål" and "nynorsk". **By request, a "norsk-engelsk" list of terms has been added to the exam.** The topics "boolean algebra" and "the binomial theorem" are not on the curriculum this year. (They have not been covered in the lectures nor the exercises, and "boolean algebra" is not covered in the textbook.) The following link has some useful information to review on how to submit handwritten paper for the exam: https://i.ntnu.no/wiki/-/wiki/English/School+exam+with+hand+drawings+-+for+students

* 05.06.23: Because of the high demand, for the office hours today I am in room 656 on the 6th floor of Sentralbygg II.

* 31.05.23: In case anyone wants to ask questions regarding old exam problems or the curriculum more generally, I have office hours between 10:15 and 12:00 on Friday 02.06, and between 13:15 and 15:00 on Monday 05.06. My office is room 826 on the 8th floor in Sentralbygg II. You can also send me an email and schedule a Zoom meeting if that is preferred.

* 26.05.23: In problem set 2 there was a consistent error with respect to quantifier scope in problems 2 and 3. A corrected version explaining where the mistakes were has been uploaded.

* 28.04.23: In preparing for the exam, it is recommended that one looks at the exams from 2019 and earlier. Since one had access to e.g. the textbook during the home exams in 2020-2022, the exercises are generally both more difficult and somewhat different than those from 2019 and before.

* 26.04.23: **NB!** The lecture today is cancelled due to illness. As a consequence, the last lecture of the semester will be next Wednesday, i.e. Wednesday the 3rd of May.

* 26.04.23: The third reference group meeting will be held within the next couple of weeks. Please send your feedback to student members of the reference group. You can find their email adresses on Blackboard. Minutes/summaries of the previous two meetings can also be found there.
