Questions marked with a * do not have answers. 3. The tutorials have to be completed in your Tutorial Class which will be managed and checked by your tutors. 4. The first few, together with possible task(s), are important and designed to link up with the CCFO¶s and your past school education. 5. A tutorial test will be conducted EVERY TWO weeks, which will be marked and for which you will receive credit towards the year mark. These will be based on work covered in the given tutorials. The duration of these compulsory tutorial tests is approximately 45 minutes, and count the total 25 marks. Note that students are generally not required to hand tutorials for marking, because of reasons whichinclude the following: students copy work form others (i.e. plagiarism) and students do not hand in work on time (lateness), or at all and loose marks consequently (penalties) .

At the end of this module you should be able to: - Demonstrate an understanding of the basic mathematical thinking skills which relate to understanding, reading, analysis and solution of relevant business-related problems.
