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 regular problem sheets, leading to the required problem solving capability.
  • Assessment is through coursework which enables each student to demonstrate an ability to analyse and solve complex and detailed 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.
