Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Lectures are used to present the mathematical theory and techniques and demonstrate their use for solving a range of problems in the subject area.
Tutorials provide support and individual guidance to underpin students' self-study and problem solving skills and provide a forum for further discussion to aid understanding.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
