Overview

This Further Pure Mathematics programme delivered by The Open University UK is based around six books with each one developing a particular topic in pure mathematics. A feature of the module is that we identify a core route through each book. This is designed to help time-poor students to identify material necessary to understand later parts of the module. It is possible to follow the core route for some weeks and the standard route for others. Following the core route through the whole module should enable you to pass but may not enable you to gain the higher grades.

Support from your tutor

You will have a tutor who will mark and comment on your written work, and whom you can ask for advice and guidance. We may also be able to offer group tutorials (either face-to-face or online) or day schools that you are encouraged, but not obliged, to attend. Where your face-to-face tutorials are held will depend on the distribution of students taking the module.
