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 (all with transcripts/subtitles); diagrams; interactive media; animations; and self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. We provide printed materials for some module content (two books).
This module provides a range of learning events, online tutorials and pre-recorded lectures. Although not compulsory, tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.
Online practical work is a required component of assessment.
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, graphs and photographs. Interpreting 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.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which you must submit online via the OU electronic TMA system; interactive computer-marked assignments completed online; 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.
