Mode of study
Some of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images audio/video clips of up to 15 minutes long (all 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. Printed materials are provided for some module content.
This module provides face-to-face and online tutorials. Each face-to-face tutorial 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 some diagrams, graphs and photographs. Reading and interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are provided for all figures.
You may be required to search for, and make use of, third-party material online and this is assessed. Alternatives for required/assessed research material can be provided to enable you to meet the learning outcomes of the module.
This module has three Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system, one interactive Computer-Marked Assignment (iCMA) 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.
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.
