Hi Everyone

Please DO NOT repost your assignments - you must just edit them using your Blogger account.

Please DO NOT POST FOR OTHER PEOPLE, it is important to learn to do things yourself.

We do not unfortunately, have the resources to remark , but thank you for editing them after being assessed. This is very good practise.

Please use the time-table to check what is to be done each day.

There is a test for the Pretoria Learners next Wednesday 24th May covering Chapters 1, 3, and 4.

The Cape Town students did projects rather than tests due to having more time (the video reviews) I will put these up like I did for the Scientific Methods course so the Pretoria students can also enjoy these.

I noted that there was still problems with referencing using the CSE style. Here is tip when using Wikipedia you can use the Cite this from the left hand side menu under toolbox, this will take you to a webpage with all the various reference style, and quite obviously you scroll down to the CSE/CBE style. Now here is one time that you shoud copy and paste since there are many errors to be made in the referencing and hyperlinking, a very consistent one is to say UCT rather than UTC which stands for Coordinated Universal Time and "is a high-precision atomic time standard which approximately tracks Universal Time (UT). It is the basis for legal civil time all over the Earth"[1] .
