Proposed procedure (students must organize this themselves): Each student prepares written answers before class. In class, each hands his/her answers to the person sitting next in line/row. 20 - 30 minutes (or as needed) is spent correcting/commenting on the other student's answers. Then, answers are handed back to their author (along with corrections/comments); some minutes allowed for reading the comments; then discuss the problem in class.

We plan to pre-test an experiment at the seminar groups today. The seminar times will be as before (one group 14:15-16 and one 16:15-18). The first group meet at the regular classrom to discuss the assignment before break and we will move to 1220 in the 12th floor ES, during break, to do the experiment there. The second group will start at 1220 and move down to the regular room for the part of the seminar. The second group can go directly to 1220 at 16:15.
