Quiz = Computer Based Testing: Typically consists of practice mode (iTester) and assessment mode (Moodle).
Exam = Written test submitted on paper, all working shown neatly.
* Prerequisite tests embedded in these subjects.
Required Texts
Text book  Subjects  Picture 
ACESS: Notes for Engineering Mathematics B MS6L Educational Services Division (TAFE NSW)

ASSESSMENT
Lab Reports: Specification for lab reports. (Including error analysis where required)
 Project Reports: Specification for project reports.
 TESTER
tasks: Computer based learning and assessment using the
TESTER program.
Procedures and rules. For most computerbased assessments, homework must be presented before Tester (exam mode) can be attempted. In some cases, certain programs (e.g. Excel) are excluded from running with Tester during an exam.
This unit applies basic scientific principles and techniques in mechanical and manufacturing engineering situations, covering three branches of mechanics  Dynamics, Fluids and Thermodynamics.
