The Last Two Lectures of the Autumn Term 2013-2014

On the Monday of Week 10 I went through both Chapters/Lectures 18 and 19. On the Wednesday I went through first Specimen Examination Paper. A powerpoint presentation of the answers can be found here. Please note that only questions 1 to 17 are relevant.

The Exams

There will be one exam for the whole module in the Summer Term. It will have two parts. My part is described below. Alan Krause will tell you about his part later.

The examination system for the Autumn Term material is described in this detailed description of it. The examination will always have questions that will be easily answered by someone who understands the material in the module but should be difficult for someone who has just tried to memorise the module.

The answers will be scanned and then marked by computer; students will be given a Micro 2 Answer Sheet in which to record their examination number and answers.

There are two Specimen Examination Paper for the Autumn Term material. You can find these here and here. (Ignore the 'Table for questions 25 and 26' - it should not be there.) You can also find powerpoint presentations of the answers here and here, but do not look at these until you have attempted the paper yourself.
