If you need to submit your assignment early, you can post your assignment in these boxes Monday 13th, Tuesday 14th or Wednesday 15th. Your assignment must be stapled inside a manilla folder, on the front of which you should write the initial of your family name as a LARGE letter. A cover sheet (get it here) must be signed and attached. See page 25 of the Junior Mathematics Handbook for further information re submission of assignments. In particular, please use a black or blue pen, not pencil. Assignments without a cover sheet, or in the incorrect format, may not be marked.
Practice for Quiz 1Quiz 1 will be held in your assigned tutorial in the week commencing Monday 22 April. You must sit the quiz during the tutorial in which you are enrolled for your quiz mark to be recorded. Practice questions can be found here; solutions can be found here (updated 19/4/13).

Correction to printed notesPlease download a corrected version of pages 13 and 15 of the printed course notes here. This corrects some minor typographical errors on pages 13 and 15.
Maths Learning CentreExtra help in Junior Mathematics units is available for some students from the Mathematics Learning Centre - see here for more information.
Handwritten lecture notesThe handwritten notes are what was acually written in lectures using the visualiser. This is very similar in both the 8am and 11am streams, so unless there are substantial differences, we only post one version.
You can also find Emma's notes for the second half of the course from last year here. This is intended as an extra resource, and the details of included content may differ this year so please use the lecture notes above as your main study materials!
Additional materialFrom time to time additional material will be posted here.
Tutorials and SolutionsIt is very important that you genuinely attempt the questions marked Questions to complete BEFORE the tutorial before your timetabled tutorial.
You should wait until before your tutorial class to print out the sheet, as the sheets may change throughout the semester and updated versions will be posted below.
