SCHEDULED LEARNING AND TEACHING ACTIVITY
Internally developed study materials will be provided based on the required topics. Students will undertake two sessions per week combining lectures and tutorials to cover the general module content. In the Science Activity Room, students will be provided with models and instruments to enable them to understand the curriculum by simple practical experiments or through models. In addition to this, video clippings or digital data will be used as required by the topic. Worksheets that to be done in the classroom and at home will be provided. Students must utilize a wide range of books and reliable internet resources available in the library to follow an individual study programme. Assessment is done by one Quiz, one Mid-Term Examination, and one Final Examination.
The method of assessment for this module has been designed to test all the learning outcomes. Students must demonstrate successful achievement of these learning outcomes to pass the module
