All lectures, labs, tutorials and tests are held from 10am-11.50am. Lectures and tests are held in HM002. Labs are held in CO238 and CO243. Tutorials are held in CO118 and CO119. Lecture content is generally Logic on Mondays 10-12 and Tuesdays 10-11, Statistics on Tuesdays 11-12 and Thursdays 10-12.

The eight assignments are all due at 4pm on the relevant days. Four assignments are on Logic (L), four assignments are on Statistics (S). Reviewing your marked assignments is the best way for you to get FEEDBACK on how you are doing in the course.

Helpdesks (focussed on the assignments, both Logic and Statistics) will be held on Fridays and Mondays from 12pm-12.50pm in CO119, starting Fri Nov 15. We will run two additional helpdesks on Tuesday December 3rd from 12-12.50 and on Monday December 16th from 1.10-2.00.

Assignments and Tutorials and Answers

Please click for Assignments and Tutorial Questions, and model answers.

Test One

There will be two tests. Test One is held in HM002 on Wednesday December 4th from 10am-12pm. Test One is worth 20% of your final mark and will cover both Logic and Statistics.

Revision examples for Test One

For the Logic part of the course I would suggest studying the assignment and tutorial questions (remember to also learn definitions from the notes).

Here are some revision questions for you to try:

Test Two

Test Two is held in HM002 on Wednesday December 18 from 10am-12pm. Test Two is worth 40% of your final mark and will cover both Logic and Statistics. This test takes the place of the final exam.

Assessment

To expand on the official assessment notes in the Course Outline, here is how your percentage mark is calculated, on which your final grade is based:

Assignments 20%, Labs 20%, Test One 20%, Test Two 40%.

Tests One and Two will each be made up of an equal value of Logic and Statistics questions.

Assignments:
  • there are eight assignments (due 4pm on 18/11, 25/11, 2/12 and 13/12)
  • four assignments are on Logic, four assignments are on Statistics
  • if you get 40% or more of an assignment correct, you will be awarded full marks for that assignment (3.33%)
  • if you get less than 40% correct, you will be awared a pro rata proportion of the full marks eg if someone gets 30%, they would receive 0.75*3.33; 20% correct would receive 0.5*3.33 etc
  • your best 6 assignments will count towards your final mark
  • it is in your best interests to complete all 8 assignments, this will help you understand the material for the tests and also give you the best chance of achieving the full 20% value of the assignments.
