Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content
This paper is taught through interactive lectures and F2F tutorials, students have the option to join an online tutorial taught by a Hamilton tutor. But joining a f2f tutorial is strongly encouraged unless your timetable clashes with the F2F tutorials offered in Tauranga. The lecture is recorded on Panopto so attendance at the lecture is desirable but not compulsory but attendance at your scheduled weekly tutorial is mandatory unless your absence has been communicated, in advance, with your tutor.
