This is an online module which implies all study material can be found under "official study material" and "additional resources" on myUnisa. Also note that we will only be accepting assignments which are submitted ONLINE, in one document, through myUnisa in PDF format. Assignments sent through the Post office, through the course contact email box or in the incorrect format (such as DOC, DOCX, etc.) will not be marked. Therefore, you will receive an automatic ZERO for the given assignment. Also, remember to familiarize yourself with the concept of plagiarism as we have a zero tolerance policy.
