Assessment Title  Module Tests 

Task Description You will complete nine modules in MATH40237 (from the Fundamental Mathematics for University textbook). At the conclusion of each module, you must complete the corresponding Module Test. These tests are available on the MATH40237 Moodle site. These Module Tests are completed as assignments  no supervision is required. The purpose of these tests is to monitor your progress throughout the term, allowing you to identify any concepts that require further review. The tests also provide a basis for communication between you and your Lecturer/Unit Coordinator. You must achieve an overall average of 50% across the nine Module Tests in order to be awarded a PASS for Assessment Task 1. You must PASS Assessment Task 1 in order to be awarded a PASS for MATH40237.
