dc.description.abstract This paper argues that the achievement of learning objectives for a first year mathematics subject, Operations Research Modelling can be best fostered through a blended learning design.'Blended learning' can be used in a variety of contextx. In this paper, the definition used is that of the integration of 'traditional' learning activities - lectures, tutorials, Mathematica and optimisation laboratories and paper-based assessment tasks - with leanring activities and environments more usually associated with other disciplines - collaborative learning, online assessment, peer review, case studies, spreadsheet technology, and the information and communication technology, Blackboard. It is argued that a blended learning design includes learning activities that more closely mirror professional practice and is ore likely to encourage a deep approach to learning. Effectiveness of the blended learning design is examined from the perspective of students and teaching staff, trhough the analysis of responses to questionnaires and comments collected.
