#### Modes of Teaching, Learning and Assessment and how these contribute to the learning outcomes of the module

- The courses in Probability and Statistics and Numerical Methods are covered in lectures, and are reinforced by problem classes and by weekly problem sheets, leading to the required problem solving capability. Assessment is through written examination and assessed homework which enables each student to demonstrate an ability to analyse and solve new problems.
- Students are able to make use of staff 'Tutorial Hours' to discuss any aspect of the module with teaching staff on a one-to-one basis. These are sign up sessions available for up to one hour per week.
