Learning and Teaching Activities
In the lecture, you will be given practical explanations and examples to supplement the text materials. Every week, you are expected to read both the textbook chapter(s) listed in the Unit Schedule and any supplementary materials specified on iLearn. You are also expected to read the relevant text chapters and supplementary materials before attending the lecture. Lecture slides in pdf format will be available on the unit web page on a weekly basis. It is suggested that you bring a copy of the lecture slides to each class and make any additional notes you think are important.
In Session 1 2017, tutorials commence in Week 1. The purpose of tutorials (especially from Week 2 to 13) is to provide an interactive learning environment in which students will practise the materials covered in lectures. You are required to prepare the weekly tutorial questions before attending the tutorial. Your weekly homework will be checked by your tutor at the beginning of each tutorial (as mentioned in the Assessment Task section). Solutions to tutorial questions will be available on the unit web page by the end of each week. You are expected to study the solutions provided and compare them with your own attempts. If you are experiencing difficulties, it is suggested you attend the PAL sessions or staff consultations.
