Workbooks introduce you to core concepts by accessing web sites, videos, eBooks and other materials online – a method for self-paced exercise based learning. The weekly lectures for week 6, 7 and 8 will be used to clarify and discuss concepts covered in the corresponding workbooks.


This assignment involves you to complete the following workbooks:


    • Workbook for Week 6
    • Workbook for Week 7
    • Workbook for Week 8


In this assignment, the workbooks are designed to have two parts A and B:


  • The part A in the workbook will enable you in engage learning with constant feedback and support from the lecture/tutor. The exercises in this part basically introduce main concepts of the topics discussed in the lecture. The tutorial time is used to individually grade each exercise you do and provide immediate verbal feedback.  The tutor will mark all the exercises in part A in tutorial time. All the part A section in the workbook should be reviewed and graded by the tutor before the end of Week 10 tutorial.  After Week 10 no marks will be awarded for part A.


  • The part B in the workbook will enable you to do detail research and analysis of the topics with the information gained from part A and the corresponding lecture. This part may require out of scheduled classes for reading required reference materials. All the answers for the exercises in this part should have well cited article/videos. The videos cited should be uploaded by reputed company rather than by any individual.
