Individual written 4 hours examination. Books and notes are allowed, but no calculators, computers, cell phones or the like.

To be eligible to take the exam, you must have at least 3 accepted self-study assignments (miniprojects) and 10 accepted ordinary hand-in exercises.

Hand-in exercises and miniprojects must be uploaded in Moodle as pdf-files or jpg-files (do not use archive files). Scan in your individual (hand-written) solution or take a picture of it. The file name must include the session number for the hand-in. MATLAB figures can be saved as pdf-files via File -> Save As -> choose pdf format.

There is a deadline for uploading each assignment. After the deadline, the teacher will check a sample of the hand-ins. If an assignment cannot be accepted, the teacher will notify you by email.

Late hand-ins can be uploaded at a special slot, however the teacher can refuse to accept these.

**Exercise: The number pi**

In this exercise we estimate π via regular polygons inscribed in the unit circle.

- Compute h
_{1}and h_{2}. - Compute the area of ΔOAC and the area of ΔABC.
- Use your results from 2. to find an underestimate for π.
- Let M be the midpoint of the (shortest) arc from B to C. Compute the area of ΔBMC

and find a better estimate for π. How could one improve this estimate?
