 +==== Examination Modalities ====
 +
 +If you cannot attend the exam on **February 14th 2020**, write a mail to [[:people |Alexander Zeilmann]] until
 +**February 21th 2020, 23:59** stating that you want to attend a second exam.
 +
 +The second exam will (most likely) take place around the beginning of the next semester.
 +So far the date is not fixed.
 +
 +Further information:​
 +  - You can attend at most two exams.
 +  - If you pass your first exam, you cannot attend a second exam.
 +  - You do not have to register for the first exam. Just show up.
 +  - For the second exam, as stated above, you have to notify us if you want to attend. However, as for the first exam, you register for the exam by showing up.
 +  - If you do not attend an exam and you hand in a medical attest of sickness in the office of [[:people |Alexander Zeilmann]] up until one week after the planned date of the exam, you can repeat this exam. This holds true for your first and second exam.
 +  - If you do not attend the first exam and do not hand in a medical attest of sickness you can attend the second exam, but there will be no third exam for you.
 +  - There are no auxiliary means allowed. You should bring a pen, your student identity card and your normal identity card (Personalausweis) or driver'​s license.
 +
 +==== Using Mathematica ====
 +Go to the [[https://​www.wolfram.com/​programming-lab/​|Wolfram Programming Lab]] and click on the orange button.
 +This brings you to a tutorial notebook. With the file menu in the light grey bar, you can create an empty notebook.
 +In the notebook, you can paste the code from the code files below.
 +Execute the code with Shift+Enter.
