### Teaching method

The lectures will be as interactive with the students as possible. The students are encouraged to raise questions about the topics being discussed in a lecture.

In the problem-solving sessions, problems are proposed to the students with the goals: to exercise their critical thinking and ability to discuss ideas, to consolidate their use of terminology, as well as to prepare for an exam.
