Current News

The Refinement slides from last week have been updated (thanks to Prof Ken Robinson, who took on board the feedback from our discussion). The main change has been to separate the queue token names into a different set (as we discussed). (I did say this is state-of-the-art material )
Discussion 3 is now available.
Assignment 2 and Discussion 2 are now available.
Both the first assignment and the first discussion issue are now available.
