Diagrams and other visual content
The study materials contain a considerable number of diagrams and graphs. Producing examples of these is part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are provided.
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.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which can be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system or by post, and an End-of-Module 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.
