Tuition strategy

This module provides face-to-face tutorials. Each face-to-face learning event has 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 a considerable number of diagrams. Reading, interpreting and producing examples of these is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are not provided.


This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which may be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system or by post, interactive Computer-Marked Assignments (iCMAs) completed online (although the questions are provided as a PDF), 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. Solutions and some explanations will also be provided for the interactive Computer-Marked Assignments (iCMAs). You should refer to these to help you prepare for your next assignment and to revise for the exam.


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.
