This assessment is allocated one sixth of the overall module marks. It should be the equivalent of 500 words long.


  1. Choose a suitable level of question.
  2. Presentation - how it looks - how it reads.
  3. Mathematical content - is it correct, well explained and of a suitable level?

  5. Structure of answer, with introduction and conclusion.
  6. Bibliography and references.
