including adequate demonstration of solving examples. Tutorial examples will be provided on which students are expected to make full use of unsupervised time.SYNOPSIS: The module contains a range of basic engineering mathematics including numbers. LEARNING STRATEGY: Concepts and techniques will be introduced in lectures. linear mathematics. calculus and numerical techniques to support the engineering modules. Difficulties will be dealt with in tutorial classes Approved: SAVP Chairs Action May 2014 Version: 03 Effective: 14/15 Page 2 of 6 . functions.

OUTLINE SYLLABUS: Numbers. exponential. recurrence relations. arithmetic and algebraic procedures. Differentiation and integration of simple functions and rules of differentiation for products. trigonometric.

2-hour examination.c. Assessment tasks/weighting: 1. Each of the tests to contribute a maximum of 10% to the overall module mark (maximum total of 30%).

These In Class Tests will be held under the University regulations related to the arrangement and conduct of coursework.c. This will be the final stage of assessment.b. Three in-class tests throughout the year . 70% . 30% The tests are of 40mins duration standard time extended as directed forany students requiring extra time.ASSESSMENT STRATEGY: Formative Assessment: Formative assessment and feedback will be provided through tutorial sessions. a.b. Tutor reassessment will be available.

In addition. The tests will enable the students to learn more effectively by providing feedback immediately after completing each end of section test. Each assessment will be structured so as to assess minimum achievement and provide grading.uk/myreading/lists/NFM2106 Approved: SAVP Chairs Action May 2014 Version: 03 Effective: 14/15 Page 6 of 6 . the continual nature of the tests enables those students who perform less well in formal examinations to better demonstrate their learning.Assessment criteria: Each assessment will test all outcomes. The final examination enables students to demonstrate their overall grasp of the subject matter and its interrelated nature. looking for basic understanding and ability to apply the techniques.hud.
