What do u learn in a foundation year?Watch
I’m doing a math and physics foundation year. What should I expect? It’ll help if u went to the University of Lincoln as that’s where I’ll be studying.
The modules for the course that are shown don’t tell me specifically what I will actually be learning. It simply states maths and physics through out various portions of the year.
If u have done a foundation year that’ll help too.

Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists
This core module is compulsory for all Science Foundation Year students. The module aims to develop the relevant problem solving and mathematical skills to provide a solid mathematical base to support future studies. The module will be assessed via regular submission of coursework questions (50%) and an end of year examination (50%).
This core module is compulsory for all Science Foundation Year students. During the communication elements of the module, you will have the opportunity to develop your learning, group work and presentation skills, together with both written and verbal communication skills and ICT skills. The module will be assessed via submission of three pieces of coursework.
A reflective learning journal
A group presentation
A scientific essay
Fundamentals of Physics
This module is compulsory for students progressing into Mathematics and Physics degrees, and is an optional choice for those on Engineering or Chemistry degree paths. The aim of this module is to recap and consolidate your knowledge on key areas of A-Level Physics, whilst also developing key processing and mathematical skills. Work within laboratory sessions also aim to increase your confidence in both working practically and analysing practical results. The module will be assessed via coursework (50%) and an end of year examination (50%).
