Assignment
The assignment will be due in your tutorials in week 10 (Tuesday 6 October). It will be posted here by Tuesday 22 September (two weeks before the due date).
Quizzes
 Quiz 1 will be held in tutorials in week 6 (Tuesday 1 September). It will draw on material from the lectures in Weeks 14. Questions may be similar to questions on the exercise sheets related to this lecture material. Study advice: first revise the lecture notes and chapters in the course notes and do related exercises (either alone or in a study group). Then attempt the sample quiz. If you cannot solve a question, have another go at revision and discuss with other students before you look at the solutions. A sample for Quiz 1 is now available and so are its solutions (now with correct answer to question 4).
 Quiz 2 will be held in tutorials in week 11 (Tuesday 13 October). A sample quiz will be posted by Friday 2 October.
