Synopsis:

The main motivation is to let students to deal with real-world

problems properly. When working in teams on real problems the student

shall learn how to decompose the big problem, how to define

interfaces, how to test and validate individual steps and so on. Many

problems will actually be beyond the first-year-student skills. And

many problem will not be solved in the optimal way. The unsolved parts

should motivate the students to study difficult theoretical

subjects. They should generate the important questions. Ideally, at

the end of the subject, the student should be eager to study deeper

about informatics.

Requirements:

none
