Feedback and assessment

Coursework - for credit: this will consist of two parts.
Part I,
a take-home problem sheet [10%]. See the 2017 coursework sheet and model solutions.
Part II
will be online, Blackboard-based tests (weeks 10-11) [10%].

Formative assessment - not for credit: in the examples and feedback classes, the students will be given quizzes to attempt, which will then be discussed in class, marked, and the result emailed individually to each student. Students can get feedback on their understanding directly from the lecturer, for example during the lecturer's office hour (see below).

Feedback on old exam papers: here.
