Mode of study
This module is delivered online but printed materials are provided for the core module text. Online-only materials include audio, video clips (with transcripts/subtitles), diagrams, interactive animations and self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms.
This module provides a range of learning events: face-to-face tutorials. Each face-to-face learning event offers an online (or other) alternative. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.
Mathematical and scientific expressions and notations
Mathematical and scientific symbols and expressions are used throughout the module and you will be required to use such notation within assessment.
Diagrams and other visual content
The study materials contain a considerable number of diagrams and graphs, and some computer animations, screencasts and photographs. Reading and interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module. Figure descriptions are provided for most figures.
Specialist reading material
In this module you will be working with specialist reading material which includes mathematical notation. This is delivered online; units, extra exercises and a handbook are also delivered in printed form.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs) which can be submitted on paper (by post) or online via the OU electronic TMA system, self-assessed practice quizzes completed online, and an exam that must be taken at an exam centre.
You will receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to reflect on your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment. Solutions and some explanation will also be provided for the interactive practice quizzes.
