M366: Yet another tutorial

On Saturday I attended my 3rd tutorial for M366.  The previous 2 tutorials have been at the University of Westminster, but this one was at Croydon College and held by my actual tutor.

Even though it was a 2.5 hour round trip for a 2 hour tutorial, it was worth it as the tutorial was both informative and enjoyable, as well as being well attended (10 students if memory serves correctly).

After the general intro’s, we had an overview of all the blocks and the TMA’s (i.e. weighting, no substitution), plus general discussions about AI and the course so far.  A number of students thought that the course text made a lot of assumptions (i.e. the logic section) in that we have previous experience in specific areas, and I made the observation that perhaps M263 should be a required course for taking M366, as M263 covers in depth a number of topics in Block 2 of M366.

One very useful piece of information given is that we should allow plenty of time for TMA03 as it will be rather time consuming due to the practical's involved.
