Mode of study
Some of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, video clips of 1–10 minutes long (all with transcripts/subtitles), interactive media, animations and self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Printed materials are provided for some of the module content.
This module provides a range of face-to-face and online tutorials. Each face-to-face learning event offers 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, graphs and photographs. Reading and interpreting examples of these is an important part of the study of this module and we assess this. We provide figure descriptions for all figures.
You may be required to search for and make use of third-party material online, but we do not assess this.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which you must submit online via the OU electronic TMA system; interactive Computer-Marked Assignments (iCMAs) completed online; and an exam that you must take 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.
