Accessibility Statement for Learning and doing geometry (ME321)

Mode of study

Most of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images; audio/video clips (all with transcripts/subtitles); diagrams; interactive media; animations, online forums and online tutorial rooms. We provide printed materials for some module content.

Every effort has been made to ensure that students can achieve all learning outcomes of the module through material which is accessible by a screen reader. There are some links to external resources which may not be entirely accessible, but these are not essential to achieve the learning outcomes of the module.

Tuition strategy

This module provides 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 some diagrams/graphs/photographs. 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.

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 third-party software.


This module has tutor-marked assignments (TMAs) and an end-of-module assessment (EMA) that you must submit via the online TMA/EMA service.


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.

Specialist software

In the module materials and assessment, you will be asked to use specialist software called GeoGebra. Sometimes you will be asked to create your own GeoGebra files and sometimes you will be asked to work with GeoGebra files created by the module team.

We do not claim that GeoGebra is completely accessible, but it does offer users the option to use algebraic inputs and commands instead of operations using the computer mouse. Guidance on such things as keyboard shortcuts and the use of screen readers can be found in the GeoGebra manual located on its website.

The GeoGebra files created by the module team are usually embedded in the materials on the module website. These provide the option of using keyboard controls and they include descriptions that can be read by screen readers. In addition, they are provided as downloadable files from the module website and there are versions on the GeoGebra website.
