Computer Algebra: Feedback

Two types of feedback are provided.
  1. Formative: this is feedback on your performance on some aspect of the course that does not directly contribute to the course marks. In Computer Algebra this type of feedback is provided by students attempting exercises from the notes suggested at the end of a lecture. These will be discussed at the next lecture. Students are also encouraged to attempt other exercises from the notes, KK will be happy to discuss any issues that arise either privately or in class.
  2. Summative: this is feedback on assessment that contributes to the final mark of the course. In Computer Algebra three assessed practicals are issued (the first is very light and is simply a timetabled way of getting to know Maple). These are marked by KK, feedback is provided both by comments on the submission and a handout (for the second and third exercises).
