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).

Assessment Methods
