  • Homework

    This will now be set on the Friday of the Week number, and is due 15.00pm the following Friday. Please upload to Blackboard by this time.
    (The system is automated so the deadline for the marker is strict.) NB The homework is not part of the course assessment (they are voluntary) but is nevertheless a necessary part of the learning process: it is there for you to practise, and you would be wise to at least attempt them each week to enhance your understanding. You should certainly study the solutions.

  • Exercise Solutions selected - combined for the course - these will accumulate as the course progresses.

  • Revision Topics
