Teaching and Assessment
As the course is gradually built up from foundation knowledge in early sessions to applications in later classes students should ensure that they do not miss a class. At least 70% attendance is needed as a minimum. Classroom exercises and home work should be attempted as it reinforces learning when it is checked against answers provided later.
