This unit is characterised by a moderate degree of flexibility. It incorporates a variety of learning tools and media. It will comprise:
1. 3-hours lectures per week (one 1-hour and one 2-hour lecture), weeks 1-13;
2. One 1-hour tutorial per week, weeks 1-13 (except where indicated);
3. One 2-hour laboratory practicals per week 1-13 (except where indicated).
Participation in practical classes is a hurdle requirement for this unit. It is a condition of passing the unit that students must actively participate in a minimum of 80% of the practical classes for the semester. Students are expected to present their lab manuals to their tutors at the conclusion of the weekly practical class and will be marked on the completion of the activities. If you do not meet the participation requirement, regardless of your accumulative marks, you will be unable to receive a passing grade for this unit.
Students must attend the classes (tutorials and lab practical’s) in which they enrolled. They may not exchange their class time. In special circumstances, students may apply (with the appropriate documentation) in writing to the unit convener, for requests regarding changes. These requests are to be submitted to the scientific officer.
