Excluded Combination of Modules
- To develop skills in modelling the real world and the use of computers in solving such models numerically
- By the end of the module students will: be able to model a range of problems drawn from the physical world.
- Have acquired a range of programming skills in Python appropriate for solving a range of problems drawn from the physical world.
- In addition students will have the ability to undertake and defend the use of alternative mathematical skills in the following areas with minimal guidance: Modelling.
Modes of Teaching, Learning and Assessment and how these contribute to the learning outcomes of the module
- Lectures introduce the basic concepts and provide general feedback.
- Practical sessions develop and practice programming skills, and provide active engagement and feedback to the learning process.
- Weekly clinics will be used to support the practicals and give student an opportunity to consolidate their learning.
- Formative and summative assessments guide students in the correct development of their knowledge and skills. They are also an aid in developing students' awareness of standards required.
- The two assessed Mini-Projects (one formative and one summative) will train students to write an extended report with precision and rigour of expression.
