## How the Course Is OrganizedThe mathematics course in the first year in chemistry consists of the Maths Labs, plus plenary lectures and non-computer-based tutorials. In the lectures and tutorials there is, on the whole, less explicit chemistry content than there is in the Labs. Each Lab session lasts for three hours, and students attend one a week while the course is active (a total of 11 weeks, split among the three terms of the academic year). In addition, students have open access to the computers at certain other times if they need it.
The first two weeks are taken up by a six-hour introduction to The rest of the course consists of seven modules, some of which are designed to represent three hours' work, and some six. In each, one or more topics in mathematics are approached via one or more problems drawn from a branch of physical chemistry.
