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 1-10 minutes (all with transcripts/subtitles); diagrams; interactive media; and multiple-choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Module software (R, delivered via Jupyter notebooks) is accessible through a standard web browser.
This module has online tutorials. Although not compulsory, tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.
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 graphs. Reading/interpreting/producing examples of these is an important part of the study of this module, and we assess this. We provide descriptions for all essential figures.
You could be required to search for, and make use of, third-party material online, and we may assess this. 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 mathematical notation. We’ll present these online; in printed form; via a third party; via third-party software.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which you must submit online via the OU electronic TMA system; and an end-of-module assessment submitted online.
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.
We structure all University modules to a set timetable and you’ll need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. We’ll support you in developing these skills.
