  • QUIZZES FOR ASSESSMENT

    **** QUIZ 1 in tutorials in WEEK 5 ****

    This is a reminder that Quiz 1 will be held in your tutorial in week 5 (beginning 25 August).

    The quiz will cover the material from weeks 1 - 4 (inclusive).

    The practice quiz is here.

    The actual quiz will consist of 15 short questions, each similar to one of the practice questions.

    The time allowed for the quiz is 40 minutes.

    You may use your own non-programmable calculator during the quiz.

    You must sit the quiz in the tutorial in which you are enrolled. Check here for information about what to do if you miss the quiz.

  • TUTORIALS

    Exercises for tutorials will be posted here each week. You must print the tutorial sheet from here, and take it to your class with you. You will get the most benefit from your tutorial class if you try the exercises beforehand, so that you can ask your tutor specific questions if you have any problems. Short answers are provided to some of the questions. It goes without saying that you should attempt the questions before looking at the answers.

    Full solutions to all questions will be provided at the beginning of the next week.

    In addition to the tutorial exercises for each week you should try the web quiz for some immediate feedback on your understanding of the material.

  • NOTE: Tutorials begin in week 2.

    NOTE: There is no MATH1014 tutorial in week 1.

    There is, however, a tutorial sheet for week 1. You should use these questions for practice before your Tutorial for week 2.

  • LECTURE MATERIAL

    Some information about the material covered in lectures is here.

    Scanned notes from the lectures are provided. Unless you also attended lectures, they will probably not make a lot of sense. These notes have not been proof-read.

    The teaching material appearing on this web site is intended for the use of enrolled students of the University of Sydney, and (unless otherwise specified) the University of Sydney holds copyright. Any other person or institution wishing to use any of this material must contact the university to make appropriate arrangements.
