  • Homework

    This is set on the Monday of the Week number, and is due 12.00pm the following Monday. 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. The Homework questions are embedded in the course text - there are no separate sheets for this. The solutions are published accordingly gradually (see 'Exercise Solutions' below).

    Homework Sets

  • Exercise Solutions

    Selected, combined for the course. NB not all Exercises are given solutions. This does not maean they are not part the course. These solution sets will only become live only after completion of the relevant homework exercises. There are no Homework sheets: the questions are all embedded in the text. There are no separate Homework Solution sheets. N.B. These solutions sets are by Chapter not by Week, and each will grow in length until the deadline for which all homework relevant to the chapter is passed.
