LUMEN - Loughborough University Mathematics for ENgineers

Study Schedule

Lumen Logo

One of the aims of the module is to keep you thinking about mathematics throughout your year in industry. It is important that you develop good study habits and work regularly and consistently through the material.

Remember this is more of a marathon than a sprint. Doing everything by the end of January may, in fact be counter productive to the aim of keeping various maths topics 'fresh' shortly before you go up to university.

The following schedule provides guidance on which topics ought to have been studied by which dates:

The module commences October. Students are welcome to register on the programme up to 31st December.

Practice tests on each of the topics will be available in the LUMEN Assessment Area after you have logged in. You may take any of the tests at any time but you are STRONGLY advised to submit tests within the period shown and in the order presented:
