Exercise Sheets and Solutions
There are no tutorial classes in Week 1. There is, however, a problem sheet for
you to attempt in your own time before your Tutorial for Week 2.
In tutorials you will work in small groups, up at the whiteboards, working
through questions together. The questions for the tutorials will be provided
by your tutor during your tutorial.
Of course in 1 hour we can't get through enough material to practice the
week's work thoroughly, and so there are more questions for you to
attempt in your own time in the sheets below. These sheets will appear as
the semester progresses, and solutions will also be provided at the end of
each week (or early the following 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.
Here are scans of the notes written on the projector during class. They
will be posted at the end of each week. Recordings of the lectures are also
available through blackboard.
