Mode of study
Printed materials are provided for the core module text. All of this module's study materials are also online; this includes PDFs of any printed materials, plus some items which are only provided online. Online-only materials include audio/video clips (with transcripts). Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms.
This module provides a range of learning events either face-to-face or online. Each face-to-face learning event offers an online 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 some photographs. Reading, interpreting and producing examples of these is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are provided for most figures.
Alternatives for required/assessed research material can be provided to enable you to meet the learning outcomes of the module.
Specialist reading material
In this module you will be working with specialist reading material which includes mathematical notation. This is delivered both online and in printed form, and also via bespoke and third party software. If you have any concerns about this aspect of the module, please contact us for further advice.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which may be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system or by post,; 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.
All University modules are structured according to a set timetable and you will need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. You will be supported in developing these skills. If you are concerned about the time management required at undergraduate level, please contact us before you register on the module to find out what we can do to support you.
