Mode of study
All of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, audio/video clips (most with transcripts/subtitles), diagrams, interactive media, animations and multiple-choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Printable alternatives are provided for all module content.
This module provides a range of learning events: face-to-face tutorials, day schools/workshops. Each face-to-face learning event offers an online (or other) alternative. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.
Working with others
You will not be required to work with other students.
Online practical work forms a required component of assessment. Alternative study materials have been prepared to enable students with visual impairments or limited manual dexterity to successfully study the module.
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, graphs and photographs. Reading, interpreting and producing related diagrams and graphs is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are provided for some figures.
You will be required to make use of third-party material online and this is assessed.
Specialist reading material
In this module you will be working with specialist reading material in the form of mathematical notation. This is delivered online.
This module has 6 Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system, interactive 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.
