The ratios of the credit are 70%(final examination) and 30%(small tests). 
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Message The lecture has the duty to rouse your interest.
Let's use the library. I wish you to examine things by yourself.
The lecture should not become the one way learning from a teacher. 
Other The class begins on schedule. It is natural that the tardy is the most unreasonable. 
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
