Course Disposition

This is a distance learning course and the pedagogy for this course is assignment based learning with a large element of freedom in the problem solving process. The course brings up a large subject area by presenting a set of assignments where each assignment:
- Focuses on one sub area at a time to increase understanding and to reduce complexity
- Is specified in a general way to motivate alternative, possibly deeper, solutions
The course requires the skill to work alone but has a large element of interactivity by continuous and direct support from tutors at distance.
