Slides will be added below as we go along. The slides from last year will give a good idea about what's coming up.
These are lecture slides, not comprehensive notes. You should supplement the slides with notes taken in lectures, and from your own reading. References and specific reading recommendations are given in slides, further guidance is given in lectures. The examinable material consists of what is covered in lectures, tutorials and practicals (unless specifically excluded) and the reading recommended in lectures.
There are four tutorials. Tutorial groups are
by the ITO, see the
groups, times and rooms here.
The first tutorial is on Thu 31st January.
Tutorials are based on question sheets which you should use to help guide your own study for the course. Solutions will be issued a while after the question sheets so you can measure your progress. There is not enough time to cover all topics; you should aim to cover remaining topics to a similar depth of knowledge.
There are two assessed coursework exercises, each worth 12.5% of the final mark.
