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 of techniques and concepts; diagrams; interactive media; animations; and multiple-choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. We provide printed materials for all module content, with the exception of the spreadsheets used in activities.
This module provides a range of online tutorials. Although not compulsory, tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.
Working with others
You’ll be required to work with other students, and we assess this. This includes looking at, and commenting on, others’ work; reflecting on others’ comments on your work; and/or working together with fellow learners on a task.
Mathematical and scientific expressions and notations
You’ll be required to use mathematical and scientific symbols and expressions throughout the module and within assessment.
Diagrams and other visual content
The study materials contain a considerable number of diagrams. Interpreting and producing examples of these is an important part of the study of this module, and we assess this. We provide descriptions for most essential figures.
You could be required to search for, and make use of, third-party material online. We can provide alternatives for required/assessed research material to enable you to meet the learning outcomes of the module.
Specialist reading material
In this module, you’ll be working with specialist reading material such as formulas and mathematical notation. We’ll present all of these online.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which you must submit online via the OU electronic TMA system.
You’ll 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.
