About Case Studies

The Case Studies are intended as a group project. At the laboratory session, you will be asked to form sets, each with 4-7 members. You should arrange to meet together during weeks 2 and 3. You should elect a leader and a secretary and to work towards the report on your project.

The project should be writien in flowing English, with headings as necessary. You may leave any calculations to an Appendix.

Assistance with the case studies: You should feel free to ask me about the Case Studies. Use E-mail to make an appointment. I shall be available on Friday 26 May from 1030-1600 in my office LO/016 for discussion of final points.
