Shares Game: contributes 40% to the module mark which is split as follows: presentation (10), Excel spreadsheet (5), report on individual performance (20), report on group performance (5)
Practical Excel examination (2 hours) 30%.
interim Shares Game progress through feedback on progress, suppplemented with examples of good practice
class based Excel exercises

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to build on skills gained in FHEQ 4 (CHE1031 and 1037):
develop the necessary skills for professional employment;
develop a professional approach to report writing;
increase communication within teams; and
enhance mathematical problem solving abilities.
The learning and teaching methods include:
individual and group presentations;
poster and personal portfolio (electronic); and
practical use of advanced Excel in workshops
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
