Organize training of new tutors 1 October Markus -
Set up the exercises by using local material 15 October LOC experienced tutors to provide help
Shipping of material to Rehovot 15 November Markus What will be shipped depends on the status of the locally set up exercises. According to S. Krattinger shipping (land based) takes 3 weeks

Issues for later

  • Think about the home-work (C programming) and how to make sure that all students do it
