On this page you will find exercise sets and solution proposals.

You need at least 8 approved exercise sets to be granted access to the exam. It is, however, strongly recommended that you complete all exercise sets.

You can check how many of your exercise sets have been approved on https://ovsys.math.ntnu.no/.

It is your responsibility to pay attention to your own progress and contact your student assistant immediately if something seems wrong. If you are not in the exercise tracking system, please contact your student assistant informing him or her about the situtation and giving your full name, study program, and username.

Approvals from previous semesters

If you have fulfilled the exercise requirements a previous semester, you do not have to do so again. If you want confirmation that you have a registered approval from previous semesters, you need to contact Studentservice.

Submissions: time and place

Exercises will be posted online on Mondays of the week that corresponding topics are discussed in lectures.

Scripts are due online by 10.00 am on Monday a fortnight from publication – 14 days after they are posted (except the first).

You must submit your exercise set on ovsys2.


The exercises are posted here and on ovsys2.
