Teaching Rationale And Relationship
- Lectures are used to present the basic mathematical theory and techniques to demonstrate their use in solving a range of problems in the subject area (IKO1 - 3).
- 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 (ISO1 -4).
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
- The written examination provides an appropriate means to assess knowledge and understanding, and the ability to apply theory and techniques to problem solving.
The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way
