QUIZZES FOR ASSESSMENT
This is a reminder that Quiz 1 will be held in your tutorial in week 5 (beginning 24 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 nonprogrammable 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.
