TEACHING AND LEARNING STRATEGY
Students should attend all the lectures and the tutorials as it is an internal unit. Lecture handouts will contain examples and exercises mostly, without solution. The solution to these examples and exercises will be covered only in the lecture. Some additional exercises may be discussed during the lecture. During tutorial, students will have a further chance to practice techniques learned in lectures and improve their understanding.
In addition, there will be weekly exercises which students must attempt and verify answers each week in their own time.
