Written feedback will be given with the assignments. However, as with all courses, most of your time should be spent on wider study of the course. There are many other opportunities to get feedback on your understanding, but they require you to engage with the class.
In each lecture we will discuss some of the examinable material, and can review previous material. Ask questions, in person and on the class forum, and you'll get feedback on your understanding. Make the most of tutorials by taking an active role. Ask questions, and explain problems that you and your study group have had, whether you have solved them or not.
Although the class is large, you can talk with instructors on the class. Opportunities to get help are advertised on the main page. We particularly like to meet groups of people who have already discussed their question. Important exception: we can't guarantee to meet students, or give prompt replies, in the final week before the exam. Also you should not leave the assignment so late that you require an answer to a query in the last few days before it is due.
Good students will be attempting questions posed in the lectures. If you would like feedback on your answers, please post them on the class forum.
We find it really useful to hear how we can improve the delivery of the course. Please feel free to contact lecturers directly with constructive criticism or suggestions. If you would like to send anonymous comments, send them via your year’s class reps, or in writing via the ITO. At the end of the course, please fill out the course questionnaire circulated by the university. BUT don't leave it until then to give us your feedback! Please email about any problems as soon as they arise.
